"Rondaxe Lake is in fact not completely surrounded by private land as resident camp-owners would like fishermen and paddlers to believe to preserve their exclusive sense, and is therefore legally accessible. Unlike waterways which are navigable in fact there is no question about the public right of navigation when the body of water is adjoined by State land. The Adirondack Mountain Club's Trails Of The West Central Region map has accurate private and State boundary lines which you won't find on geologic survey topo maps. There are two access points via State Wild Forest detailed on the map and clearly indicated by the yellow painted state boundary line at the sites. To get to the access site park near the end of the North Shore Road just a bit past the Goose Pond and Safford Lake trail head. Head in on the North side of the road and travel Northeast about one quarter to one half mile to the North bay just downstream of the river's entrance into Rondaxe. The greater majority of the shoreline of this bay is on state land. Alternately, take the Goose Pond and Safford trail and bear right at the intersection a little under a half mile in and head down the Slideoff trail. At just about a mile from the intersection the trail will run next to a kettlehole in the river. The Northeast side of that kettlehole where the trail meets it is also state land. This hike is a bit further but is an easy walk being relatively flat. The kettle hole is also an excellent place to camp making for a great spot to come back to cook up your brookies and bass and enjoy a relaxing Adirondack evening under beautiful Slideoff mountain. Yes, I did say brookies and bass. Rondaxe has some great brookie fishing though the resident camp owners are largely unaware of their population and so stocked the lake with smallmouth bass several years ago which have since grown large in both population and size. The North Branch River flowing into Rondaxe also offers decent fishing opportunities and is especially scenic. Whichever route you choose, the short bushwack or the trail, you won't be disappointed. Get a map, and don't sweat the exclusive language. Nobody will approach you for fishing on Rondaxe, and you are in your complete right to fish any water in the Park which you have accessed via State land."

Lake Rondaxe Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 59 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Lake Rondaxe Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Lake Rondaxe Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Lake Rondaxe Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Lake Rondaxe Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
