Waddington, NY

I might be just a little biased since Waddington is my hometown, but it is by far my favorite place to fish in the whole world. So many big, healthy fish, so much water. Whitehouse Bay, Brandy Brook, around the Waddington Beach - all great places, and there are so many more. You can put a boat in at any of the several launches around the area, fish from shore, wade off the bank. So many options, and so many great fish. - Bill Haenel, Canton, NY

Waddington is a quaint, picturesque community, nestled between the Thousand Island and Adirondack regions of Northern New York. Situated on the mighty St. Lawrence River, the Village of Waddington is comprised of beautiful, tree-lined streets, with many turn-of-the-century homes; a small (but growing!) Main Street Business District; natural and man-made recreation areas; and direct access to New York’s northernmost state highway (Route 37). The outlying town is peppered with family farms; green, rolling fields; and thousands of acres of lush woodlands. Waddington is a beautiful place to visit, and a wonderful place to fish.

Waddington was the runner up in World Fishing Network’s “Ultimate Fishing Town USA” contest in 2011!  The prize - a $5,000 community donation to be used for fishing-related cause(s) in the winning town. Waddington attributes their success to the support from people all around St. Lawrence County and beyond that voted and especially to those who helped in the effort of getting votes!  As a way of saying "Thanks" they held a Community Victory Party on Sunday, June 19 celebrating their success.
