ACGS - Quality Fishing, with Quality People


Check Out our February Update!




How is your winter going? Crazy Huh?!! This is first time we had to cancel ice fishermen because it was "TOO COLD"!!! The last week of December and the first week of January our daily temperatures were 5 to 20 below zero and wind chills to "40 Below". Now we are 40 above! One thing is for sure , we will definitely have plenty of ice for the rest of the season. We have over 2 feet of ice already and we will probably pick up another 10 inches or so by the end of March. As you can see by these photos of the last two weeks, the guys are doing good!! Come on up!




2018 will be our 40th year in business, and also 40 years of attending shows. We use to do 4 to 6 shows a winter, but most of them are gone now?! It seems more people would rather book online now then talk to someone in person?


The first show we are attending is the SPORTSMAN SHOW at the Big E in West Springfield, MA Feb 23RD thru Feb 25TH It is quite a big show and it has been going on since the early 80`s


The Other show we are at is the WORLD FISHING AND OUTDOOR EXPO in Suffern, NY at the Rockland County Community College March 1st thru March 4th We have been continuously attending that one since "1978" I hope you guys can come and see us, that has always been our highlight in doing the shows, seeing "YOU".




If any of you guys are planning on coming up to fish with us this year, especially the spring, and haven`t booked, now is the time. Many of our spring dates are booked a year in advance, and the rest of the spring dates will be booked up at the shows. For those of you who have booked already, and have not sent a deposit or contacted me lately , please call or e-mail me soon, ok?


Well I guess that is it for another update, Hope to see you all at the shows or up here for some ice fishing, OR BOTH?!!

Bye for Now

The Guide Service

ACGS Boat on Lake Champlain

Adirondack-Champlain Guide Service specializes in Lake Champlain fishing for smallmouth bass in the trophy category. We have been guiding clients for over 36 years working out of our Lodge on Long Pond, located in Willsboro, NY. Our extensive knowledge of Adirondack fishing is unsurpassed, combined with our intimate knowledge of Lake Champlain has made us the number one guide service in the Northeast. Fishing in the Adirondack inland lakes is another service we provide and excel at. Adirondack fishing can be challenging and very rewarding plus you’re surrounded by so much natural splendor. Also visit our About Us page to learn more about the Guide Service. We are offering some great Guide Service Rates this year. Learn more about the guide service or our fishing packages.

The Long Pond Lodge

TLodge_Picture_small.jpghe Lodge provides a vast array of fishing packages and can accommodate up to 18 people who come to fish. We provide meals and lodging packages, guide service only packages and full service packages where we combine all our services. We have support from 14 local guides who work with us to provide the best in service and knowledge. Long Pond, which is located directly behind our Lodge, is an excellent Adirondack Park fishery. It contains quality large and smallmouth bass, northern pike and a good mixture of large panfish. Rowboats are provided, free of charge, on all Lodge fishing packages. The fishing packages we offer for the pond do not include the guide service.  This is a great way to reduce your overall expenses and still enjoy a great fishing opportunity.  We do provide a detailed map that reflects all the hotspots and weedbeds. We also provide various ice fishing packages during the long winter on Long Pond. Learn more about the guide service or our fishing packages.
