Thousand Islands


All along the St. Lawrence River from Cape Vincent to Alex Bay, the fishing is picking up. Bullheads are hot. In the bays and the streams all along the river, they are catching lots of bullhead for some sweet eating. Perch are hitting in Eel Bay and many other bays. Pike is slow, but as the water warms it will get better. There are bass everywhere, they are still on their beds, but when the season opens the bite should be great. Use live bait, night crawlers and tube jigs. Ask your favorite bait and tackle shop for the latest information. If you are looking for a place to dock your boat for the season in this area, check out the Millens Bay Marina and Cottages. Millens Bay is a well protected bay just a short distance from Cape Vincent and Lake Ontario. They are near Carlton Island where some of the best bass, muskie, walleye and northern pike fishing is available. They have a launch, store and rent boats & motors and cottages. Call 315-654-2175 for reservations.

The Cape Vincent Chamber of Commerce Spring Fishing Derby was held on May 10-11 and was a success. The winning walleye was caught by Ray McIntosh of Chaumont, a 31”, 11lb-2oz beauty. The largest Northern Pike was caught by “Huck” Balcom of Cape Vincent, a 34 ˝”, 9lb-9oz monster. The largest Brown Trout was a 24 ˝”, 6lb-9oz dandy, caught be David LaLond of Clayton. There was no lake trout entered. Most of the fish were caught in Chaumont Bay. Congratulations to all.

Look for a Walleye and Small Mouth Bass derby on August 23-24, sponsored by the Cape Vincent Chamber of Commerce.

On State Route 12E just opposite Cedar Point State Park is the Cedar Point General Store where in addition to gas & oil you can purchase almost everything needed for a stay at the State Park including groceries and camping gear. They have super pizza and delicious deli sandwiches.

For a wonderful cottage camping experience on the St. Lawrence River, look for Mil’s Riverfront Cottages and Motel. Located on State Route 12 just east of Clayton, Mil’s has excellent docks for your boat or you can rent one of their boats. Round Island is nearby and is an excellent fishing hole for all the game fish in this area. Call 315-686-3891 or toll free 877-516-9684 for reservations.
