I'm from PA also Lancaster good luck on your trip , post a report with pictures when you get back .

 

On nice.  I am about 45 mins east of you in Downingtown.  I fish the west branch of the Susquehanna regularly near Wyalusing for smallies.  Really looking forward to this father/son trip to Gananoque.  Again, appreciate all the info.

I talked to one of my friends who has been making a trip to Gananoque the last 15 summers he said make sure you have some spinner baits and spoons . He said any deep weed edges you will find Pike they also fish the points of a couple of the islands and do well on Bass . Good Luck

Awesome advice and thanks for all the help Hank!  I think I'm all geared up ready to go.  I picked up some stuff for ned rigs as they work really well for smallies in NE Pennsylvania.  I have some longer worms for a wacky rig or drop shot, some different soft baits like yum/keitech for more enticing drop shots.  I also got some tubes and some rattlin rogues.  I will bring my handful of spinner baits for pike.  I am only lacking spoons which I may have to pick up in Canadian Tire when I get up there as the spoons around here are very small.  We lack pike here so it's hard to find properly sized pike lures.  

 

Got most of my reels spooled up with new 10lb line.  My son's push button has new 8lb test on it.  I am also bringing a trout rod to play with some perch/rock bass.

Any chance for walleyes in mid July?

Well I've kind of focused my attention to one of those houseboat rentals which seems rather economical vs. a cottage with a boat rental.  Plus it's a little more of an adventure although I have little boating experience so that troubles me a little bit. I think it's one thing to hop into a 16' bass boat and go fishing versus living on a houseboat for several days and dealing with docking it, anchoring it, etc.  When is the best time to fish the St. Lawrence between July 1 and end of August?  I was shooting for maybe 2nd or 3rd week of July to avoid 4th of July crowds.  Hope the bugs aren't too bad.
