Henderson Harbor NY has been known over the years as the “Home of the Black Bass”.  It has been hosting Sport Fishing Derbies for at least the last 40 years, making 1975 the first year a formal Bass Fishing Derby was held.

Since the mid 1970’s, the fishery has evolved to be a cornucopia of species that have anglers from all over the country returning year after year to catch the trophy of the species they are after.  Our fishery produces record Walleye, Northern Pike, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Cohoe and King Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Pickerel, Perch and a multitude of pan fish that make it a great place to drop a line in the water; from shore, small boat or charter boat fishing.


We invite you to join us for a day of fishing, or if you desire a weekend plus of derby fishing in one or both of our major fishing derbies; the Spring Classic or the long running Bass, Walleye and Brown Trout Derby.  Come and stay with us and enjoy the warmth and hospitality of our quaint area.  Bring your family, your boat, or if you wish charter with one of our licensed Charter Boat Captains for the chance to catch the “Big One”.  Welcome to Henderson Harbor, the epicenter of the Lake Ontario Golden Crescent.
