About The Chaumont Bay
Chaumont Bay is a popular fishing location in Jefferson County situated on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. Guffin Creek, Chaumont River, and the Three Mile Creek are among its tributaries. Its 9,000-acre embayment, as well as its many tributaries, make it the largest freshwater bay in the world.
In the previous decades, Chaumont Bay was originally a port of trade for the nearby villages. Today, it is a spot frequented by families that are into recreational water activities such as swimming, sailing, and of course, fishing. The Chaumont Bay-Three Mile Bay is often referred to as the “Golden Crescent” - named as such because of its abundance of fish all year round.
