..."and then, on September 22nd 1957, in sight of Clayton, NY, I hung and landed the largest muskellunge ever caught by hook and line..."
Arthur Lawton, Outdoor Life, May, 1958


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 38th 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.

It's no wonder that in 2015, for the 23rd straight year, we are one of only 14 charter services in N.Y. State and the only one in the 1000 Islands Region approved by the North American Fishing Club, the largest sport fishing organization in the world, serving more than 500,000 angler members.
