The St. Lawrence River is widely recognized as one of North America's truly great fisheries. From pan fish, like yellow perch, to smallmouth bass, pound for pound the fightingist fish in fresh water, to walleye, great northern pike and muskellunge, the fish rich waters of the 1000 islands offer it all.

Now in our 39th year of catering to anglers from across the country and around the world, 1000 Islands Fishing Charters is widely recognized as the most experienced and innovative sport fishing charter service on the St. Lawrence River.
