December was a little challenging this year. Trying to plan trips around the wind and dirty water was tough. When we were able to get out, the bite was really good and the fish were big. The steelhead have moved in pretty thick and will winter in the river until they spawn in the spring. If you want to catch trophy trout January and February is the best time of the year.

Lower Niagara River Fishing Report.
Everything looks to be on schedule for the winter trout run on the Niagara. The Lake Trout are in the river thick and more steelhead are showing up every day. December is one of the best times to catch steelhead on the river. I only have a few open days left in December. Give me a call or send an email or text and I'll let you know my availability.

October 28th &29th
Had two great days of fishing with my new friends Pierre & Andy. These guys can fish! I took them into a spot that isn't easy to fish...especially in low water,fast current or high winds. Well these were the conditions we had both mornings trying to get a few late season kings. They learned fast and ended up landing 5 of the 7 kings they hooked. In the afternoons we went down river and caught some Lakers. The Lakers were released quickly to return to there spawning activities. Once again the Yakima Bait Company Mag lip 3.0 was a stud on the Lakers. Green machine has been the hot color. I think I'm finally done targeting salmon for the year. Let's Get the Net Wet!

Bob and John braved the elements today on the Niagara and ended up having a great day! It was 15kt-20kt NW wind and rain all day. With the wind chill this morning it was 26 Deg. We ran eggs up river and Yakima Bait Company Mag Lip 3.0's down river. The Lakers were chomping on the Mag lips! Winter season is starting off good. It's only going to get better going into November.

October 2016 salmon season...
This year's run started a little late due to record high water temps. Once the water temp reached 70 deg the bite picked up. Here are a few pics of some fish that we caught. The river salmon run doesn't last long (usually Sept 20th - Oct 20th) with the peak bite being the middle two weeks. So if you want a prime date book early to lock in the date!
The next river run will start November 1st. The targeted species will steelhead (rainbow trout) and brown trout.
We will catch lake trout also but they won't be targeted since they are out of season from Oct 1st - Jan 1st. Call or text to reserve a date. 716-560-0413
