Fishing

There are at least 13 public fishing access areas managed by local cities and towns, Niagara County, and the state of New York allowing for shoreline fishing or boat access along the Lower Niagara River and Lake Ontario. This region is considered a major destination for sport fishing, with nearby Olcott Beach being named in 2012 World’s Fishing Network “Ultimate Fishing Town”. There are numerous outfitters in Niagara County enabling anglers to charter boats for fishing excursions on the river and lake. Populating the waters of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario include northern pike, perch, bass, lake sturgeon, salmon and trout.

The Niagara River, as is the entire Great Lakes Basin of which the river is an integral part, is a legacy of the last Ice Age. 18,000 years ago southern Ontario was covered by ice sheets 2-3 kilometers thick.
