Lake Ontario- Rochester New York
This webpage "lakeontario.org" promotes recreational and charter fishing on Lake Ontario from Rochester, New York to Pt. Breeze, New York providing Rochester Area fishing reports, lodging and travel information and species and seasonal information on Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Lake Trout. The Rochester basin attracts early warm water for good spring fishing. Summer fishing includes good catches of Salmon, Steelheads, and Lake Trout. Browns can be caught closer to shore. Fall brings the legendary runs of King Salmon and Cohos.
The captains on this site each have more than 25 years of fishing experience on Lake Ontario.
Our combined site provides fishing information and fishing reports for both ports. It also provides lodging and travel information for extended stays and recreational opportunities when the fishing day is done.
Being centrally located on Lake Ontario, Rochester New York and Pt. Breeze New York have provided consistent fish catching opportunities on Lake Ontario year after year.
The month of April brings the early brown trout into the shallows to feed on the early spawning baitfish. May brings in more browns as well as the spring Kings who now are working the shallow waters of the lake with a vengeance. We also start to see schools of steelhead as the off shore waters of the lake start to warm and provide us with thermal bars and temperature breaks on the surface of the lake. Last but not least we start to see good numbers of Lake trout as they go on a feeding binge to put the pounds back on after a long winter.
June, July and August bring us schools of the largest predatory fish in Lake Ontario - the Chinook Salmon or The King Salmon. These monsters range anywhere from 10 to 15lbs in the spring to over 40 lbs of tackle busting power and line breaking size in the summer and fall months. September brings the spawning runs of salmon in the Genesee and Oak Orchard Rivers. September also brings the chance to land a record brown trout as these fish are now on a feeding binge to be ready for their fall spawning runs. We are constantly updating our fishing equipment as well as using the latest and best fishing electronics available today. Put this together with membership on many prostaffs and you have an opportunity for an above average fishing experience.
Enjoy a great day on the water in our comfortable and beamy charterboats. You won't feel crowded or cramped. And when the lake gets a little rough you will enjoy a comfortable ride. We furnish all of the latest and best rods, reels and tackle to bring you a memorable trip. Give us a call and make your reservations early in the season as many of our dates are re-booked by satisfied customers year after year.
