New York has been blessed with one of the most spectacular fishing experiences in the entire nation. Due to massive efforts by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) freshwater fishing as a whole and specifically Lake Ontario have rebounded from near collapses of a fishery to a veritable bounty for fishing. DEC has restocked and introduced different species in a way that has been commendable.
Sportfishing species like our famous chinook/king salmon, coho salmon, Atlantic salmon, steelhead (rainbow) trout, brown trout and lake trout all thrive in these waters in both good numbers and impressive sizes. Very successful fishing charters and an impressive tourism industry has been built up around the great fishing Lake Ontario now offers.
Marinas and charter fishing opportunities are offered in ports and marinas up and down the New York coast including the Port of Oswego, Port Ontario, Pulaski, Henderson Harbor, Sodus Point and Mexico Bay. This much competition for your attention has its pros and cons.
