Lake Ontario is the most prolific Great Lakes trophy trout and salmon producer.

Tributary waters like the Oak Orchard River and the open Lake Ontario make an unequaled year round trout and salmon sport fishery that is truly World Class! Fishing Orleans County waters is both relaxing and instantly exhilarating when fighting a 12 pound brown in the tribs or a 30 pound Chinook on the Lake. The diversity and productivity of the fishery is unequaled among Great Lakes trout and salmon angling destinations.

In Lake Ontario during the spring, summer and fall, charter and recreational anglers catch an array of trophy trout and salmon. Kings, Coho, Atlantic Salmon, Steelhead, Lake Trout and Brown Trout all make the cool waters of western Lake Ontario their home.

In the Oak Orchard River and nearby tribs like Johnson Creek and Sandy Creek during the fall, winter and spring, the trout and salmon make upstream migrations where guides and anglers cast and make hopeful drifts. The salmon and trout roam the cool deep Lake and quick flowing tribs gorging themselves on bait fish and eggs - growing to trophy size and strong fighters awaiting your offering of lure, spoon, fly or bait.
