Welcome To The Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina
Enjoy spending time at one of New York State's premier fisheries. Located at the Mouth of the Salmon River at Lake Ontario, the marina has something for everyone. Families, fishermen, lighthouse lovers and even ghost hunters from around the world, have spent time enjoying our beautiful surroundings, sunsets and beaches. Unlike a major portion of Lake Ontario with its rocky coastline, our little piece of paradise offers guests the unique enjoyment of a massive stretch of soft sand beaches and a sandy and very gently deepening lake bottom, located directly across the river on New York State public access park land.
This world-class fishery produces trophy salmon, brown trout, lake trout, steelhead year after year... and yes even bass, as well as several other species of fish. The lake fishing season begins in April and culminates in the fall with the "ever-exciting" Salmon Run into and up the river. For the die hard "elements-immune" fisherman, the late autumn and early winter months offer tremendous steelhead fishing.
For those with desires other than fresh water sport fishing, our 1838 fully-operational Selkirk Lighthouse (rumored to be inhabited by ghosts!!) offers comfortable and cozy overnight accommodations throughout the spring, summer and fall. Just minutes away are a fine selection of golf courses, restaurants, a go-cart track with miniature golf, and the Salmon River Hatchery. We are also located close enough to the 1000 Islands, Canada, and the Adirondack region of New York to make fun, family day trips an added option and bonus.
Seasonal & transient boat slips, seasonal & daily boat trailer parking, small boat rentals, gas / diesel fuel sales and a new retail store are a few of the additional amenities planned for this upcoming 2014 Season.
The Salmon River Lighthouse & Marina is currently in the process of changing ownership. If you would like to be notified when our new and improved reservation system is up and running, please email us directly at: SELKIRKLIGHT@gmail.com.
We thank you in advance for your patience and we look forward to seeing you during the upcoming season in beautiful Port Ontario, NY.
