Freshwater fishing in St. Lawrence

Freshwater fishing in St. Lawrence County and across New York state kicks off May 7 with the opening of the fishing seasons for walleye, northern pike, pickerel and tiger muskellunge.
Anglers can take advantage of the black bass catch-and-release season now underway in many waters throughout the state. Bass anglers should check the New York State Freshwater Fishing Regulations Guide to ensure that the water they desire to fish is open to catch and release angling. The regular season for black bass opens June 18.
