Great day on the Lower Niagara River on Saturday with some new friends. This was there first time fishing steelhead on the river. All four guys were on the program before the end of the first drift and the action good all day. We had at least 45 bites and landed around 25 fish! When the action is this good it's hard to keep track.
ONE MORE THING...
The bite hasn't peaked yet it's just going to get better in February!
The new year brings us a new fishing season and some new adventures.
Follow us as we create new memories and relive some old ones.
Winter is finally settling in on western New York. Lake Erie is 90% ice covered, the Niagara River is the perfect color green and the temperature is averaging between 15-25 degrees.
This is steelhead season on the Lower Niagara River. January & February offer some of the best fishing if the year. Dig out some warm clothes and let's go fishing. This is the cure for cabin fever!
First two trips of 2015...
It felt really good to get back on the water today! The water was a chalky green color and the clarity improved as the day went on. It's winter steelhead season on the lower Niagara river. Bud and Doug had a good day steelheading today and landed lots of nice fish.
COLD start to day 2 with Bud and Doug today. When we left the dock it 7 degrees and north wind. Anything that could freeze...did! These guys are troopers! They dressed warm and hung in there all day. Their reward was a nice limit of fish and extras that we released.
It's time to go fishing...let's GET THE NET WET!
November and December are great months to fish for trout on the Lower Niagara river. Trips start at day break from the boat launch in Historic Lewiston. During the course of the day we will fish the famous Art Park and Devils Hole drifts and you will get to see the Niagara & Ontario power projects that are just up stream from the Lewiston Queenstown bridge. It's an experience you won't want to miss out on! Now is the time if you want to get the NET WET!! Call,text or e-mail me.
The conditions are prime on the river right now. Randy and Ron were up for there annual December fishing trip and as usual Randy had hidden horseshoe!! We had a lot of good fish today including Randy's 14 Lb buck.
After a few weeks of muddy water the river is finally green and fishable again. December is one of the best months to fish the lower Niagara for steelhead. Don't miss your chance to get the NET WET!
It was nice to get back on the water for a day of steelhead fishing on the lower Niagara. Jeff & his son Gavin had a great day today. The fish were very cooperative...
Don't forget...A gift certificate from WET NET CHARTERS makes a perfect Christmas gift!
November 8th 2014
Had a great day on the lower Niagara River with "BIG" Al and his dad "no fish after noon". Good steelhead action in the morning and a few Lake trout in the afternoon. Lots of fish in the river right now. Some brown trout are starting to show up also. Just for the record I could have made an extra $100.00 today if I would of taken the bet from dad...we put 4 fish in the boat after noon!!
