Franklin Falls Pond near Saranac Lake, New York
The 455 acres of water that make up the Franklin Falls Pond are known to contain bass (both kinds) that average 2-3 lbs, nice panfish, fair stocked walleyes, and ok pike. If you want to try fishing for those fish then you should fish the shallow bays, fallen trees, the inlets, the outlet, and shallow rocks early in the fishing season.

Consider using spinners, jigs, soft plastics, live bait, crank baits, top waters, and spoons. Good luck fishing!
