Minutes from Malone, yet in a gorgeous wilderness area, Mountain View Lake is one of two great local ice fishing lakes. This is the one known for "loads of structure" and plenty of potential spots to try.
Access: Take Duane Road (Route 27) south from Malone to the town of Mountain View. Park on Mountain View Avenue; the boat launch is near the bridge.
Species: Northern pike, yellow perch, pumpkinseed.
