Are you ready to go on an awesome Salmon and Trout fishing trip? Then you need to book one with 716 SPORTFISHING today. Captain Matt and his crew will do everything they can to make sure you have an epic day of fishing. Capt. Matt loves seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they catch fish and he really enjoys when people become aware of the treasure they have in their own backyard. The unexpected fishing grounds are often the most fun to fish!

Hop on board and enjoy the comfortable 38’ Viking! This boat has a full walk-in cabin with a private bathroom, a kitchen, a couch, bed, and kitchen table. The deck of the boat is open, making room for you to enjoy the sun and fight fish. There is plenty of space here for all 6 anglers in your group to fish at the same time.

You’ll be targeting a range of fish during your trip, including Coho, Atlantic, and Chinook Salmon. The other species you’ll be going after are Brown, Lake, and Rainbow Trout. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it!

Children older than 6 are welcome to come along on these trips and will have life vests provided for them. Any fish caught can be cleaned by the captain for you, so have a cooler waiting in the car that’s ready to take your catch home to be cooked.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels from Shimano and Okuma. These won’t let you down when reeling in your first fish ever or even trophy catch.

You’ll need to purchase a NY State fishing license before the day of the trip. Feel free to bring along a small cooler of food and drinks for the day, too. Dress for the weather and pack a rain jacket or sun protection, and you’ll be ready for a great day of fishing.

Book a trip with 716 SPORTFISHING and you’ll soon see why so many customers come back to fish with Capt. Matt.

I started fishing Lake Ontario when I was a child with my father. It turned into an addiction and passion. I now fish 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You won’t find another person who puts more time into catching fish than I do, and I say that with 100% confidence! I absolutely love trolling for Salmon and Trout on Lake Ontario and I do that as much as possible. When I’m not on running charters I’m always fishing for something somewhere.
