Lake Abanakee

Central Adirondack Trail and Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Indian Lake in Hamilton County

Route 28 crosses this reservoir fed by inflow from the Jessup River just east of Indian Lake.

Approximately 4 miles long and ½ mile wide, Lake Abanakee winds around islands with nesting osprey and eagles. Both large and small mouth Bass are abundant, as are the more elusive Northern Pike. The plentiful pan-fish population will keep the beginning fisherman interested, while the experienced hand can attempt a larger catch, including Muskie and Walleye. Lake Abanakee is exceptionally quiet. Rare is the loud motor boat, though trolling motors are welcome. Paddle enthusiasts will find hours of leisurely touring. Or, travel up the Indian River and over a wooded portage to experience Indian Lake.
