Fishing Opportunities at Point Breeze

Lake Ontario never freezes over, providing year-round fishing for the adventurous and hardy. Stream fishing for spawning Trout and Salmon is available in the Spring, Fall and Winter. Snagging for Salmon has been phased out.

 

Lake Ontario's cold water fishing consists of Lake, Rainbow, Steelhead and Brown Trout; along with Chinook (Atlantic/King) and Coho (Silver) Salmon. The daily lake limit is 3 Lake Trout, 1 Atlantic Salmon, and 3 in aggregate of the remaining species (Rainbow, Steelhead, Brown Trout, King, Coho and Humpback Salmon). It also has a warm water fishery of Small and Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike and Panfish.

APRIL - MAY

Spectacular near-shore Brown Trout fishing. Limit catches are common. Salmon to 25 lbs. occasionally; Brown Trout 10-15 lbs., considered wall hangers. Lots of smaller (4-8 lbs.) Trout and Salmon. Catch and release of 10-30 fish per day is common on the right days. Panfishing is fabulous and Northern Pike fishing is good. If you have a smaller boat now is the time to bring it. Be sure to stop by Lake Breeze Marina and check out the local Salmon and Trout Pen-Rearing Project.

MID-MAY - JUNE

As the water warms, fish move out. Look for temperature changes in surface water. Begin to fish 20' to 30' deep. Steelhead and Salmon are prime targets. Lake Trout are eating everything in sight. Plan to fish 1/2 to 5 miles off shore. Bass season opens and 3 lb. Small Mouths are common. Lots of Large Mouth Bass and Panfish in the river.

JULY

Plan to fish 5 to 9 miles off shore. Find a current or thermal bar. Fish are about
as wild as they can get with 100+ yard runs, tail walking, and just plain nasty if they get hooked.

 

AUGUST

The mature Salmon begin to show up 2 or 3 miles off the mouth of the river preparing to make their spawning run. Charters fish early morning for Salmon then move off shore for Steelhead & Scamaina Trout.

NOVEMBER

Stream fishing is World Class - Salmon,
Steelhead and Brown Trout throughout all of the streams. Salmon over 30 lbs. are common, as are 15 lb. trout. Deer season opens.

 

DECEMBER - MARCH

Sorry, this is our off-season and we are closed.  However, on the good days, lots of good near-shore and river fishing. Great stream fishing for Rainbow and Brown Trout. Stream fishing is open year round.
