Thousand Islands


Fishing the mighty St. Lawrence River is a must when planning your next vacation, fishing trip, or when you are searching for some real fishing thrills and excitement. A fishing charter with an Alexandria Bay guides association member will insure that you are getting a professional experience that will be memorable for a lifetime.


The professional members of the Alex Bay Fishing Guides Association provide an intimate knowledge of the 1864 islands and countless shoals that make up the 1000 Islands Region of the St. Lawrence River. Located in Northern New York State, on the Canadian border, the Thousand Islands was once called “The Venice of North America”.

Our area has the highest density of islands, providing sheltered fishing grounds no matter the weather. Our well maintained boats provide for safe and stable fishing and are equipped with state of the art electronics, safety equipment, and all necessary fishing gear, tackle and bait.

Each boat can accommodate 6 passengers comfortably. Arrangements can be made for groups both large and small with 15 or more boats at our disposal.

Our guides offer both full and half day charters, and optional shore dinners at our beautiful picnic area on one of the 1000 Islands.

Shore Dinner

To make the most out of your trip, you’ll need to bring along appropriate clothing for the time of year, non-slip shoes, rain gear, hat, sunglasses, sunblock, camera, lunch and beverages of choice, and a cooler to take your catch home. Note: Children 12 years of age and under must wear a U.S.C.G. approved PDF, while underway.


Fisherman 16 years old must provide their own fishing license.

As the international border splits the 1000 Islands region our guides will recommend either a NY or Ontario License based on the current fishing conditions. Please inquire with your captain as to his preference. Both the NY & Ontario licenses can be purchased reasonably.

NY DEC License
