Oswegatchie River St. Lawrence River

The City of Ogdensburg was actually founded by a French missionary from Oka, Quebec in 1749. He constructed Fort LaPresentation, here where the Oswegatchie River
meets the St. Lawrence River in what is now downtown Ogdensburg. In later years a ferry connected Ogdensburg and Prescott, Ontario. Today the spectacular Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge links our two countries and people.


The rivers holds populations of smallmouth bass, walleyes, northern pike, muskies, catfish, and panfish. The Oswegatchie offers anglers the opportunity to fish from shore, to wade for fish, to use a canoe or to fish in a small motorized boat.


Ice Fishing is one of Ogdensburg's most popular winter sports. Wheathouse Bay, located in the city, is recognized as one of the best ice fishing locations along the entire St. Lawrence River. Northern Pike and Yellow Perch are the two most popular species.
