Black Lake, NY

Widely recognized as the top crappie lake in the area, Black Lake is a 5,800-acre lake in the northwest part of the state with a nice mix of fish species. Anglers can explore over 60 miles of shoreline in search of crappie, bass, walleye, perch and northern pike.

A concrete boat launch ramp allows launching of motor boats, with no limit on horsepower. Canoes, kayaks, row boats and car toppers can be trekked to many areas around the lake for launching, with some of these ares giving access to fishing from the bank. Rental boats, fishing tackle, bait, groceries, dining and lodging are all available at the lake. All species are caught each year while ice fishing. An annual ice fishing derby is held the first weekend in February by the Black Lake Fish and Game Club.
