The southern end of enchanting Lake Memphremagog on the border to Canada is little known in the U.S. and one of the most peaceful lakes in the northeast. It has spectacular scenery and is perfect for boating, fishing, biking, birding or to enjoy fall foliage....More

Lake Memphremagog is the alleged home of Memphre, one of the American "Nessies". I did not see one on our boat cruise, but I did see a large wake in the water in the late afternoon. It must have been the Memphre.

if you're in northern Vermont and it's a clear day (sunshine probably helps) then you ought to go see this lake. There are beautiful views from higher elevations not far from the lake. Also possible to take a tour boat on the lake.

Did a 15 mile swim in there, and didn't have too many issues. Kayaking and swimming are great in this lake.

Bass and perch. Some sunfish. I can not catch anything. Last fish I caught was 50 years ago. I need hand grenades to catch fish.
