What a great day to be on the water today. Good weather...good company...and good fishing. Jim drove in from Connecticut for his annual steelhead trip and he wasn't disappointed.

November 19. 2019

Had a few great days on the water with some guys and a kid who was perfect on the rod! The bite is just what it should be this time of year. Good steelhead bite with some lakers and browns mixed in. Now is the time to get the net wet before winter comes back. Let's GET THE NET WET... (716) 550-0413

November 15, 2019

Had two good days of fishing with Mike and Rob. Here are some of the fish we caught. Today was a Yakima Bait Company mag lip day! Steelies and Lakers were chowing on them. Green machine and Grinch produced all the bites. Lots of immature smelt in the river right now. The bite is only going to get better.

November 5, 2019

As we transition into winter and temperature starts to drop it draws the trout into the river to spawn. November and December can be some of the best fishing of the year. The lower Niagara river sees good runs of Brown trout, Steelhead (rainbow trout) and Lake trout. We launch at the town of Lewiston public boat launch and fish the Devils hole and Artpark drifts.

Early Autumn Action!

Switched gears today and went after green fish instead of silvers. I received a call from a guy who wanted to fish for lake trout with hopes of getting one over 20 lbs for the wall. It didn't take long for us to achieve our goal. Our first bite was about 5 minutes after we set lines and was the biggest fish of the day! It tipped the scale at a little over 21 lbs.

August 9. 2019

Another couple of good days in the book. The matures are starting to stage offshore. It looks like we are going to have a good fall...

August 4, 2019

The trout and salmon bite on Lake Ontario has been really good. Here are a few pics from the last few days. The epic season continues...

April 29th & 30th

The KINGS have arrived!! Normally the salmon bite isn't this good in April but they are HERE and they are feeding! We had a limit of kings with a few trout the last two days. These kings are also way about average size for this time of year also. Our average size has been 14-18 lbs. These fish will put on 10-12 lbs by mid August. We are going to have some big kings this year and a lot of them. Believe me when I say "This will be a season to remember". Don't miss out on your chance at some drag screaming spring kings!

Due to a few cancelations a few block of dates have opened up. Both of these blocks of dates have been booked since last May. These dates will book up fast. Please contact me for any additional information or to book your date. Call or Text - 716-550-0413

Our Clients say ...

"We drove seven hours to go fishing with Wet Net Charters. It was my son's first experience on the lake. Captain Matt worked really hard to find the fish and put us on them. In less than ideal conditions, he found them and my son and I caught our first lakers. Matt was great with my son and it was well worth the trip."
