Mason Lake Fishing Area

Ice Fishing

Access via Perkins Clearing Road for yellow perch.


Bullhead fishing is a favorite, especially along Perkins Clearing Road. For brown trout, the best fishing is from a boat. This allows access to deeper, and cooler, waters in the center of the pond.

Directions to Access Points

From the intersection of Route 28 and Route 30 in Indian Lake follow Route 30 toward Speculator. Continue on Route 30 past the Lewey Lake Campground and locate Mason Lake on the right about 4 miles further. There is a designated parking area for the lake. Other access point do exist on the north side of the lake off the dirt road to Perkins Clearing.

Shoreline Fishing

There is good shore fishing from Route 30 but much better from Perkins Clearing Road on the north side where campsites are available. Best for bullhead fishing

Boat access

Canoe and Kayak access only, but you can have small outboards if you so choose to carry them down.

Fish Species Types

Perch, Bullhead, Brown Trout


Primitive sites available on Perkins Clearing Road on the north side.
