Our first fishermen are catching a lot, having a blast. Our boat launch works at low water. 
The weather changes, the fishermen's spirit, and success, does not.
Last night also, the air was warm, no wind, the lake was glittering; and the fish went crazy...
Dear Friends, 

As we are heading into the season of 2021, Guffin Bay Resort and Marina is under a new ownership by Viola, and a new team of management. We have been racing to finish a wide range of renovations reaching every corner of this lot of land that opens such a unique gateway to the immense lake Ontario and fish.
Besides all the interior updates, we have reinforced the boat launch, fully restore the peninsula bay, and will have more docks.
We will have rental boats. We also have quite a few kayaks for rent, including a unique design called wavewalk, which is more stable than really all the small boats, and yet it is fast and agile, especially when a motor is put on. 
We will slowly bring back the bait shop, and initiate new services. To that end, we welcome and appreciate any suggestions you may have (please feel free to drop us a note, or thoughts, or suggestions

Above all, like the roar of seas, 
as the waves pound the concrete shore line, they applaud your arrival and echo the memory of your stay.

Guffin Bay Team.



"Poets talk about 'spots of time', but it is really the fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone."  -Norman Maclean 
Dear Honorable Fisherman, We have a purple fee post installed on the right side (you facing the lake) of the lake front parking. A charge of $10 per day to launch and park for drop-in fishing. 

Thank you. – Guffin Bay Resort and Marina.
