Placid Bay Ventures is a professional guide service. Our fishing packages are geared to the person looking for a serious fishing experience. We encourage our guests to "catch and release" as much as possible, so that
the wonderful resources we now have will be there for our future generations.
What will we be fishing for? The predominant species in this area is trout - Lake Trout, Brook, Brown & Rainbow Trout. We also have waters that are great for Bass and Pike. We advise our clients to consult one of our guides, for the best season for each species, since air and water temperature are important to catch.
Fly Fishing with our expert guide will enable you to Match the Hatch!

He also offers a Fly Fishing School.
Float Tube Trips
Many of the most pristine fly-fishing waters found in the Adirondacks can only be accessed by trail. Our guides have found that float tubes provide the most versatility in these remote areas. Whether you enjoy fly-fishing for pike, bass, or trout, nothing gets you closer to the action than float tubes. Weighing less than 10 pounds, these light durable craft pack and carry with ease. Once on the water, you will discover why float tubes are the guide's choice for wilderness fly-fishing.
