Eastern View Outfitters – Saratoga Lake

If you’re looking to experience some of the best fishing that Upstate New York has to offer, why not do it alongside a local guide who really knows what he’s talking about? Located on beautiful Saratoga Lake, Eastern View Outfitters is one of the busiest and most established charter companies here. Behind the helm is Captain Bryce Collins, a lifelong angler who grew up in this area. He can’t wait to introduce you to what these waters hold!

You’ll be casting off from a comfortable Nitro bass boat that, at 19’, has plenty of room for up to 2 guests, plus your guide. Built in 2019, the boat features the most modern, up-to-date electronics and equipment to put you on fish. You’ll soon be reeling in a keeper with top-of-the-line gear, aided and abetted by the boat’s Hummingbird electronics and Minn Kota trolling motor. This is perfect for quietly sneaking up on your catch!

During your trip, you’ll be able to explore some of the most productive waters that the “Capital Region” has to offer. As well as the productive Saratoga Lake, you’ll also get to fish nearby waterways, with your captain guiding the boat to wherever the fish are biting best. It’s a freshwater bonanza out here, and Capt. Bryce specializes in targeting Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike, and Pickerel.

Depending on your skill level, you’ll be able to try out a range of techniques to hook your catch, including spinning, jigging, and bottom fishing. Don’t worry if you’re new to angling – your captain will happily show you the ropes, and can provide each guest with one-on-one advice and guidance, thanks to the small group size.

You’ll be provided with top-quality rods and reels, as well as lures and tackle. Just purchase a fishing license, and bring along snacks and drinks. Capt. Bryce prefers catch and release, but you can keep a few fish to take home. Eastern View Outfitters promises to give you the perfect introduction to Saratoga Lake – come discover these waters for yourself!
