Red Dog Fishing Charters and Ewing Charters received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Thousand Islands.

The most popular fish species you can target are Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Walleye. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, trolling, and spinning. Lake fishing, river fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Visiting this famous archipelago on the Canada–US border is an adventure in itself, but fishing the Thousand Islands is a complete experience. Made up of 1,864 islands on the St. Lawrence River, emerging from Lake Ontario, the region is home to some great freshwater fishing. Spend a day here surrounded by stunning nature and beautiful calm waters, and recharge your batteries.

Lake Ontario is a rich freshwater haven with limitless options to explore. Famous for its populations of Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, and Musky, it’s a dream location for any avid angler. Perch, Trout, Walleye, and Salmon all call these waters their home, so you can reel in some trophy freshwater species while relaxing in the untouched nature the area is known for.

With a wide variety of trips on offer, you’re sure to find something that interests you. You can go on a morning or afternoon half day trip, targeting any specific species you have in mind. Full day trips give you more flexibility as you can cover more ground, and maximize your chances of reeling in a big one. A multiday trip can be a whole vacation filled with fun activities!

Depending on the area you’re visiting, you can fish in one of the bays of Lake Ontario, like Henderson and Chaumont Bay, or head up the St. Lawrence River for some more action. No matter where you go, the fishing is productive, and the natural views are amazing, so you’re sure to have a great time.

Rules & Regulations

As you’ll be fishing close to the border, depending on the side you’re on and where you want to go, you’ll need the appropriate fishing license. Buy a New York state fishing license for fishing in the US, as well as an Ontario fishing license if you plan on visiting the Canadian side.

January

With the coming of the New Year, everyone is taking a break and spending time with their families. Guides are preparing for the beginning of the fishing season.

February

Since Lake Ontario is not ready for prime fishing yet, you can head out to some tributaries and have a relaxing day.

March

With warmer temperatures approaching, you can go out on the lake and spend the day fishing for some nice Trout.

April

In April, the weather gets really nice, so you can hit the lake in search of some Brown and Rainbow Trout.

May

This is when the fishing season really kicks off, so find a charter in the area and have a fun adventure. You can target Trout, Bass, Pike, and Walleye.

June

With the beginning of summer, the weather is nice, and the fishing is even better. Hit the fishing grounds and reel in some Pike, Bass, Walleye, and Trout.

July

Lake Ontario is brimming with life, and a variety of freshwater species are biting now. Look for some Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, as well as Pike and Trout.

August

In August, the Salmon bite is hot, while Trout is always a great species to target. Enjoy the nice weather and productive fishing.

September

This is a great time to head out in search of some nice Salmon specimens. The weather is still good, and you can have a great time cruising the waters of Lake Ontario.

October

With the fall in full swing, trolling for Steelhead is a great experience. Salmon and Trout can be found in the tributaries, so hit up St. Lawrence River for a good time.

November

The Steelhead bite is hotter than ever, so this is your chance to land a trophy Rainbow. When it comes to Salmon, head out to the tributaries and reel in some Coho and Silver.

December

With the holiday season approaching, head out to the nearby areas and hit up the tributaries for some big fish among lots of snow.

Chaumont is a great fishery. Captain Dave took us all over the channel to give us an opportunity for a monster.

Captain Jerry did an excellent job at finding the fish. He really gives you an experience of lifetime vs the big boats where your only allowed to reel… Most of the time it really felt like we were just a bunch of guys going out cruising on the boat… You get that one on one time and he will teach you a lot… Definitely are planning on booking with him again.

Our time with Captain Tom and Pete was great. Crew was very open to the needs of their “passengers”. :) We caught 9 lake trout and 1 king salmon. More importantly, my 4!boys and wife had a good time with memories made. Fishing is called fishing- not catching. Pete (the 1st mate) said this during a lull in the action. So true. However, I believe Capt. Tom and Pete know how to put you in the best position to catch a fish. Hope future anglers have as much success as we did.

Jerry has a nice boat and it’s very comfortable. If the fish are out there, which they are, he’ll find them. He knows the water we fished well. Very low key and great conversations mixed with fishing made for a very enjoyable outing. Thanks Jerry!

I could not be happier with the way this trip worked out. From the welcome to the hospitality of cleaning our fish this is what it is all about. My family had an amazing day on the lake. My son and I caught 5 Northern Pike and it was a blast. I will never forget this trip and whenever I get the chance to come back I will book again. Thank you so much for making us feel like family.

We had an excellent trip with Captain Jerry. He welcomed us on the boat and picked up on our skill level and allowed us to be fishermen. We had to deal with some tough wind and Captain Jerry put us on the marks. Not that there was any subtle competition among friends… but I caught the biggest and the most. Thanks Captain Jerry. If I can make back to the area I’ll certainly be booking another trip.

Our second year going out with Ben and Eric. Could not have asked for a better day on the lake. While the walleye bite was off, lake trout and salmon made up for it. The crew worked incredibly hard to get us on the fish and we enjoyed their company and good humor. They know how to fish. Will be back again later next summer.

River Valley Charters are great. The captain stayed in regular contact with me leading up to day of our trip.They work extremely hard to catch fish. They want everyone to catch fish and constantly adjusted tactics as the fishing conditions changed throughout the day. They are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. Would recommend this boat to anyone looking for a fishing charter on Lake Ontario.

Outstanding day on the Lake. Limited out on walleyes, with an average of almost 9 lbs each. Moved out to get Lakers and Browns with equal success. Both men were tuned into the fish and the techniques to get them. Capt Ben's gear is first class and his boat is sturdy and safe. Fun and personable to be with
