On a St. Catharines fishing adventure, you’ll have access to diverse waterways, different trip options, and a whole host of delicious and fun to catch fish. This charming city in Canada’s Niagara Region really has it all. Great shops and restaurants, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and best of all – excellent angling.

With Lake Ontario and the Niagara River at your fingertips, it’s no wonder your target list is extensive. This is a year-round fishing destination and the species you can hook into include Chinook and Coho Salmon, Brown and Lake Trout, Steelhead, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and Pike.

You can target most of these species in shallow waters year-round, meaning half day trips are a great option for everyone. In the summertime, some of the coveted fish, like Salmon and Trout, move into deep offshore waters. Opt for full day trips during this period to make the most out of the fishery. If the weather conditions allow for it, ice fishing trips are a great choice in winter.

Where you’ll look for a fishing charter will depend on where you’re planning to fish. For trips on Lake Ontario, head to Port Weller or Port Dalhousie. To fish the Niagara River, charters departing from nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake provide the easiest access.

Rules & Regulations

All anglers between the ages of 18–64 will need to purchase an Ontario fishing license before hopping aboard a charter vessel. To ensure you’re fishing within the law, it’s always best to head out with a reputable guide.

4.4 / 5
Based on 25531 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

January
The main action happens at the Niagara River, where you can target Steelhead and Walleye. Make sure to dress warmly, with layered clothing.
 
February
It’s still low season and you have the best chances of landing a catch in the lower section of the Niagara River. The fish don’t bite as hard when it’s this cold, so wait a few moments before you start reeling.
March
Ice fishing in St. Catharines is slowly coming to an end. While Salmon still lay low, Trout begin to appear in higher numbers.
April

St. Catharines charter boats are back on Lake Ontario and ready to make the most of the spring season. Salmon slowly start their migration from the rivers into the lake.

May

Coho and Chinook rule the waters and Lake, Brown, and Rainbow Trout are right behind them. They’ll stick to the shallow waters, so your lines will be wet in no time.

June

This month includes two occasions for which you won’t need a fishing licence – Father’s Day Weekend and Family Fishing Week. Make the most of it and head out in search of Salmon.

July

The peak season is on and there are three things you need to do: troll, troll, troll! Whether you’re using spoons, plugs, or flat-lining – everything’s biting!

August

As summer gets hotter, the fish move to deeper waters, so you’ll probably go offshore. Salmon love cold water and they’ll dive deep to reach their ideal temperature.

September

Try catching Rainbow Trout – their aerial acrobatics make for a great show once you hook them. Salmon fishing is good as always.

October

Salmon migrate and move to the rivers. If you’re out to get them, move inshore, closer to the mouth of the river. The season is coming to a close and charter boats are being hauled out of the water.

November

The local fishing action moves to the Niagara River at this time of year. You can target Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass. Winter Steelhead fishing also kicks off. 

December

Winter fishing trips are only for the most persistent anglers. Warm up, gear up, and get out there. The lower part of the river likely isn’t frozen, so head there and try your luck against coldwater fish.

Port Dalhousie is a lovely town to visit and the marina is really nice. If you're from abroad, this area is probably one of the more temperate ones in Ontario, so you're almost guaranteed nice weather.

We had the best time with Captain Brent! He knows where the fish are and how to catch them. We brought home a nice catch of salmon. Wonderful memories. Also, due to bad weather, Brent allowed us to reschedule our booking. He was so accommodating.Will definitely be fishing with him again.

Our outing with Captain Aldo was great. He was very accommodating and his vessel was very well Equipped. We were a group of 4 adults a 4 year old and a 2 year old and everyone had fun, and the kids had space to rest when needed. We caught several Coho Salmon,Chinook as well as rainbow trout! I would definitely recommend going on a trip with him.

Steve is truly a FishMaster. He knows where to find the fishes and how to catch them. You will be surprised. Even with the fish finder machine, you can see how deep the fishes are but if you don’t know how to attract them, they will not bite. My family had a great, fun day! Highly recommended.

We had a great time with Captain Brent on his boat. He is very knowledgeable and took us to a good area where we had no trouble finding fish. You know it’s going to be a good day when you snag your first fish before all the rods have even been set! We had a great time, caught a good haul, and can reminisce about the big salmon that got away after breaking line. We’ll look forward to another trip with Fish NV in the future.

We had an afternoon trip with Captain Steve. It was a different type of fishing than the fellas were used to in the ponds and streams of PA. Heavier line. Different gear. Larger fish. Captain Steve got us onto the fish and we got some nice ones reeled in. It was a trip the boys will remember. Thanks Captain Steve.
