Lake Champlain, which lies on the border of Vermont and New York, is the sixth-largest lake in the United States. Despite its size, its narrowness and latitude mean that the lake generally freezes solid in the winter, making it an ideal destination for ice anglers. One of the reasons that Lake Champlain is such a big ice fishing draw is the wide variety of species that make their home in the lake. Ice anglers can expect to see northern pike, trout, salmon, lake trout, walleye, and panfish, such as perch and crappie.
The North Hero House Inn and Restaurant in North Hero, Vermont, offers accommodations right on the lake, as well as ice fishing packages. If your looking for a more individualized guide service, Whitetail Strategies will get you out on the ice and put you on top of the fish.
