Thousand Islands (St. Lawrence River)
Previous Rankings- 2013: #13 | 2012: #53
50 miles of the St. Lawrence River, including 1,864 islands
The only things more numerous than islands on this New York fishery are the smallmouth swimming in it. Don’t expect to enter Bassmaster’s Lunker Club by fishing here, as 6-pounders are a little tough to come by. But, expect to spend more time fighting bronzebacks than casting for them, with the average fish weighing 3 pounds.
