Chazy River

The Chazy River, which flows from Chazy Lake is actually two branches of the same river – the Great Chazy River (the Northern Branch) and the Little Chazy River (The Southern Branch). They are both tributaries of Lake Champlain, and located in Clinton County, New York.

The Great Chazy flows from Chazy Lake into Lake Champlain’s King Bay in the town of Champlain.

The Little Chazy River flows from Chazy Lake into Lake Champlain, at the Town of Chazy (north of Chazy Landing).

The Chazy River system provides ideal habitat for a variety of fish species, such as walleye, bass, perch, and northern pike, but it is especially known for it’s fantastic trout fishing, as it is annually stocked with trout by the DEC.
