According to customer reviews, LATER ON Charters, Battle Fish Charters LLC, and Captain Chris Fishing Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in New York. Full list of top fishing charters in New York.

LATER ON Charters, Battle Fish Charters LLC, and Captain Chris Fishing Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in New York.

The most popular fish species you can target are Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout (Steelhead). Top fishing techniques include trolling, light tackle, and jigging. Lake fishing, offshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Hop aboard a New York fishing charter and you’ll have access to some of the richest waters on the East Coast. The amount of different species found here is outnumbered only by the different waterways you can cast a line in. Whether it’s a freshwater game fish or a saltwater monster you’re after, New York’s got it!

Opt to explore Lake Ontario and you’ll have access to incredible Chinook and Coho Salmon fishing. That’s not all, either. Brown and Lake Trout, as well as Steelhead, call these waters home. In the state's other numerous freshwater lakes, you can target Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and Perch – to name a few.

If you’d prefer to fish in saltwater, things are just as exciting. In the summer months, don’t miss out on the opportunity to head offshore for Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna. You can also bottom fish for delicious Black Seabass and Cod. Inshore and nearshore there’s Fluke, Striped Bass, Tautog, and much more.

Trip options in New York are just as diverse as the fish. Head out on an extended full dayor even multi-day trip fromLong Island and target delicious Tuna varieties. Don’t feel like going that far out? A half day saltwater trip puts you on Striped Bass, Fluke, and Tautog.

If you’re after Salmon in Lake Ontario or the Salmon River, set aside a full day to get the most out of the action. Looking for a family friendly adventure? Bass and Trout fishing in the beautiful Finger Lakes region offers breathtaking views and rewarding catches.

 

Rules & Regulations

Fishing licenses are required for all anglers over the age of 16. Luckily, when fishing with a charter, your captain will cover licenses for everyone on board.

January

Kick off the year with great freshwater fishing. Hit the rivers and streams for Rainbow Trout, or cut through the ice in the lakes for Brown Trout, Muskellunge, and much, much more.

February

This is a great time to try ice fishing NY’s lakes in search of Walleye, Perch, Muskies, and more. You can even sign up for an ice fishing tournament, like the Northern Challenge Fishing Derby.

March

Enjoy some catch-and-release Striped Bass action or load up on tasty Brown and Rainbow Trout. Smallmouth Bass start to come into season in March, and the first few Lake Trout show up, too.

April

April is a great month for fly fishing NY’s ponds and lakes, with both Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass in season. Saltwater charters start heading out for Flounder and Striped Bass.

May

The LOC Derby opens on Lake Ontario, drawing competitive anglers from across the country. Scup, Stripers, Flounder, and Bluefish are all around in the bays, as the first Sharks show up offshore.

June

Summer Shark season is some of the best fishing in New York. The Freeport-Hudson Anglers, Star Island, and Montauk Marine Basin Shark Tournaments kick off in the deep waters off Long Island.

July

It’s easier to count the fish you can’t target in July. Hit the lake for Salmon, head offshore for Sharks and Tuna, fish the shallows for Striped Bass. The only thing off the cards is Tautog.

August

Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna hit their prime, joining monster Mako and Thresher Sharks to give you the fight of your life offshore. August also spells some of the best Trout fishing NY sees all year.

September

Tautog are finally open for harvest, joining Seabass on the menu to make for the year’s best food fishing. Coho and Chinook Salmon start to make their way upstream, so break out your fly gear.

October

October is a great time to fish the rivers and lakes, with Muskie, Pike, Perch, and Trout all on fighting form. In the rivers, the Coho and Chinook runs are in full force. Fish on!

November

Long Island fishing charters wind down to the end of Shark season while inshore anglers stock up on Blackfish and Seabass. You can also catch the last of the Black Bass this time of year.

December

Many migratory fish have moved on, but there are still some trophies around! Freshwater anglers enjoy great Steelhead fishing and bay charters pull tasty Tautog ahead of the long closed season.

For your first time if you’re fishing on a boat be prepared for seasickness it can happen to anybody and he will not enjoy it. Mastic it’s a beautiful place especially in August but it is not for everybody fishing is work especially if you’re in the heat on a boat so you have to like fishing in order to enjoy it. We loved it

If you're going to Montauk, don't skip Montauk fishing charters. It's a Mecca for Striped Bass fishing! FishingBooker helped me find the best fit for my fishing charter in Montauk and I'd highly recommend fishing in Montauk between late May and mid-July (Captain Steve told me that things only get better after the end of May).

The fishing is plenteous and exciting. However, prepare for swift currents, a tremendous undertow, and do not take the river and lakes lightly.

Olcott is a small friendly town. Walk around, enjoy the sun, and speak with the locals..... if you want to get a feel for current fishing conditions. I spoke with a few guys at The Time Out Bar & Grill and Big Fatties. Everyone was friendly and had good things to say about Captain Kurt (Stalker Charters). We caught a bunch of fish and had a great time. We were in shorts & t-shirts the entire time. Weather was perfect. Not a bad idea to bring a hoodie or long pants just in case.

To be patient while fishing because every day is definitely different. It may have some periods of waiting for a bite, but the Captain and 1st mate will never stop searching for a great spot.

The fishing at Olcott has been very good. The salmon have been staying in the Olcott area and are hitting with some consistency. Last summer and so far in 2019, fishing has been the best it has been in years. First time fishermen will be surprised at how strong the salmon are and the tremendous, drag-screaming runs by these fish.

My son and I flew in from Arizona after we booked a trip with Captain Kip. Hard fishing but Captain Kip worked his butt off and got us on the fish to make the trip worth it for all. After a 35 minute battle between cousins trading off and a 30 pound king they finally landed it to the end the day. Memories of a lifetime for those kids and proud father‘s and we would definitely do it again.
