Ice Fishing near Kingston

Very few anglers fish the ice of downtown Kingston on Lake Ontario/St Lawrence River due to the lack of ice, current, ferrys, etc. There are opportunities to target almost any open species within an hour of Kingston including various trout, walleye, pike, panfish, etc. There are a number of locations nearby to try ice fishing that are safer:
Bay of Quinte – Many Kingston anglers travel to the Bay of Quinte to target walleye during the winter migration. The ice on the bay can be very inconsistent even in the dead of winter, as it is a large river system with a lot of current. An ice fishing guide is recommended if you have never fished the Bay of Quinte.
Lakes of South Frontenac – There are a number of small lakes in South Frontenac that are open to ice fishing. Some freeze faster then others and taking precautions is important. Use the Fish ON website to access species lists and stocking reports.
