Lake Ontario and Lake Erie fishing
Beagle Charters is a full time, professional guide service on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, available 7 days a week, April through September, from Point Breeze, New York. Hook up with big, hard fighting trophy King Salmon, Steelhead Trout, Lake Trout, and Brown Trout, that reach up to 40 pounds, on Lake Ontario. These fish jump, run, and fight all the way to the boat and sometimes this can take an hour’s time. A day’s catch will not fit in your cooler. Lake Ontario has the world’s best, fresh water bite! People of all ages have fun catching fish aboard The Beagle. Families, children, and corporate groups are welcome. Catch great tasting Walleye Pike on Lake Erie, the “Walleye Capital” of the world. The walleye reach 15 pounds and are caught during the months of June, July, and August from the port of Barcelona, New York on The Beagle.

When to Come
April is the start of the fishing here. It is the most productive time of the year for quantity and quality of fish. This is trophy Brown trout time, trolling close to shore using, planer boards and stick baits and the action is non-stop.
- May brings on the warmer weather and high jumping steelhead. The state record steelhead was caught in May. It also brings on the spring charged King Salmon.
- June is a excellent time for a variety of fish being caught, the calmest lake conditions, and is also the start of the Walleye fishing on Lake Erie, the Walleye Capital of the world.
- July is both the walleye pike prime season on Erie and trout and salmon on Ontario. This is the peak Steelhead and pre-spawn King’s month to go on a feeding frenzy.
- August is the drag-screaming, tackle-busting peak King Salmon season. Come catch some of these heavy weight “Slamming Salmon”.
