November 15 - 30th

Trying to plan fishing trips around mother nature has been challenging. High winds, rain and muddy water have been the deciding factors wether to fish or stay home. When we did get out the bite was good. It's looking like we are going to have a good winter season this year. Yakima Mag lips and Lazy Larry's beads have been taking all of our fish. A good number of Steelhead have moved into the river and the lake trout spawning run is in full swing. December should provide some hot fishing!

Niagara River
October 1st

The salmon run is in full force on the lower Niagara River.

I had a fun day with Ryan and Stan today. We had a great morning bite but we were 1 for 4 after the first 3 drifts. I had to break out the ruller and crack some knuckles! I worked with them on what went wrong on the 3 we lost in a row and they proceeded to put on a clinic after that. They went 5 for 5 on the next bites and finished up the day a little early at 6 for 9. Love it when a plan comes together! Let's GET THE NET WET...Wet Net Charters  (716) 550-0413
