Chaumont-Bay is a beautiful, secluded area located near the St. Lawrence Seaway, on the east end of Lake Ontario, in what is commonly called the Thousand Islands-Seaway region of the state. The Chaumont-Three Mile Bay area is a "Golden Crescent" shaped body of water that is one of the largest fresh water bays in the world. It also has some of the best fishing in the world where its murky waters provide the perfect habitat for perch, bass, pickerel, pike, lake trout and salmon. The entrance to the bay is provided at Point Peninsula and Pillar Point, where you'll find two of the most prestigious yacht clubs in the country, as well as several local marinas. Chaumont Bay offers swimming, biking, hiking trails and cross country skiing and snowmobiling, as well as boating and fishing. A two-mile trail at Chaumont Barrens leads visitors through a unique landscape with a variety of rare habitats. Although a remote area, Chaumont Bay has motels and rentals along the water and in the village of Chaumont, and area restaurants are excellent. Many special events are held in the area each year, including the Lyme Community Field Days, the Tour de Chaumont Bay Bide Ride, along with several fishing derbies and arts and crafts fairs. In addition, Chaumont Bay is near golf courses, the ferry to Canada, boat access to the St. Lawrence Seaway and 1000 Islands boat tours.


Numerous small islands.

Chaumont Bay Fishing Report 01.18.11

We are making ice now!     This cold weather has really put all the lakes into good shape. Everyone is reporting 6 or more inches of ice but you still need to use caution on the large bodies of water as underwater current can cause thin spots in certain areas.   Ice fishing continues to be hot on Oneida Lake. The area around Lewis Point has had fair to good walleye fishing in 18 – 22 feet of water. Perch have been hitting in water as shallow as 10 feet where there is...

Chaumont Bay Fishing Report 08.31.09

This past week I was very busy with guided bass trips on three different bass fisheries in the north country. Mike and Debbie Lempa from Texas had pre-booked with me for 3 days of bass fishing so I decided to give them a sampling of what this whole area has to offer. Monday looked to be the calmest day so we launched at Sackets Harbor and did most of our fishing in Black River and Chaumont Bays on Lake Ontario. We targeted strictly smallmouth and most of the action came on spinnerbaits and...

Chaumont Bay Fishing Report 08.13.09

Friday I conducted my first Guided Bass Trip of the season on Chaumont Bay. I picked up Al, Denise, and their son Dan at Long Point State Park.  It was 48 degrees and the wind was blowing from the Northwest. The smallmouth fishing was very spotty for Chaumont.  We actually caught more largemouth. It may have just been a tough day, cool and bright, but it's hard not to think the smallmouth are also still in their post-spawn recovery. This has been a strange summer. I have a trip s...
