St. Lawrence

“What makes the area so productive for largemouth is the number of shallow bays located along the 1000 Islands Parkway and around the islands between the inner channels and the shipping lanes. According to a study by the fish biologists for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources the water, food and habitat in the St. Lawrence are almost perfect for a healthy largemouth population.
“Largemouth bass favor shallow, warmer bodies of water with a lot of weed beds to hide in and wait for prey. This area also has submerged wood, rocks and man-made cover that provide ideal largemouth habitat.”
If further proof is needed that the largemouth bass population has exploded in the area to compliment the smallmouth fishery, it can be found by the number of bass tournaments being held.

Wellesley Island State Park

Wellesley Island State Park Improvements At Wellesley Island State Park, in Fineview, Jefferson County, State Parks completed a $2 million project to replace the bathhouse at the park’s popular swimming beach. The new facility includes improved bathrooms, changing areas, a concession area and an adjoining open-air covered pavilion. To complement this completed project, the park’s campground recreation and games area will be relocated to the new facility in the Spring of 2016, instead of its current location in a barn away from the beach and across a park road. - See more at:
