A perfect Fall Weekend

The weather for this weekend could not get much better. The leaves on the trees as you look around the lake are brilliant. The fishing has picked up– now is the time you will find lunker Northerns lying in the shallows, soaking up the warmth of the sun. Hunting seasons for most species are open. Early Goose just ended, early duck starts next week. Grouse is open.

This will be a great weekend for a hike, bike ride or a paddle.

Although I will swim the dogs, I am not to sure about going in myself…

One warning– fire danger is elevated. Please be careful with your outdoor fires.

Early Bear Season

Opens Saturday. They may be hunters in the woods, from this point forward, through the Fall.

Wear blaze orange. That includes your dogs, especially if they are off leash. I also recommend they wear a bell.

Adirondack Canoe Classic

Ends today on Lake Flower. This 90 mile, three day canoe race from Old Forge to Saranac Lake is an awesome event. I have done it seven times, twice solo. I am thinking of fielding a four person crew for next year.

The finish is spectacular. 275 boats– kayaks, canoes, guideboats. They will start crossing the finish line around 10:30 and continue through the afternoon. It will be a perfect day– if you happen to be in Saranac Lake today, stop by, cheer them on, and enjoy the excitement.
