Dreams Come True – Wading

Come experience the great outdoors and have your “Dreams Come True” while wading in the rivers and creeks of Lake Ontario. Captain Rick Pecci will guide you to the best honey holes and put you on amazing fish while surrounded by New York’s beautiful wildlife. With 4 decades of experience under his belt, Capt. Rick can fish with his eyes closed and still finish the day with a bucket of fish. He’s just that good!

Your fishing destinations for the day will include the Salmon River and Oak Orchard Creek. Both locations are part of Lake Ontario’s vast network of rivers and creeks that connect the Great Lakes. These waters are packed with exciting and delicious freshwater species, and you’ll have your fair chance of snagging a few to take home.

Some of your target species include Brown and Lake Trout, as well as Steelhead. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to catch various Salmon species including Atlantic, Coho, and Chinook Salmon.

Capt. Rick welcomes children ages 8 and up to join in on the action. He’s an excellent guide and patient teacher who enjoys teaching kids and novice anglers how to fish for the first time. His trips are family-friendly and perfect for father-son or mother-daughter bonding time!

Top-of-the-line Okuma and St. Croix rods and reels are included in the trip. You can also give fly fishing a try and all the gear is provided as well. Just be sure to bring your own waders and wear extra layers of clothing. The rest will be taken care of.

Also, make sure you purchase a New York State Freshwater Fishing License before your trip. You can do so online by visiting New York State’s official website or by stopping at a local bait and tackle shop along the way. Feel free to pack some snacks and drinks, as well as any other personal items you may need.

Capt. Rick invites you and your family on an exciting adventure. Discover the hidden inlets and creeks of Lake Ontario and let your wildest “Dreams Come True!”
