Niagara Today

Recommended Posts

Hit the Lower Niagara today with a couple fellow winter diehards out in my boat for a crack at some steel. Fishing was slow to say the least, no good reports from anyone out there, we did a bunch of travelling around to try to find some fish and some good drifts. The current was a bit goofy today and some spots had barely a drift in the boat,viz not the greatest either but water still green. We tried everything...yarnflies,roe, and streamers and only came up with 2 for our efforts. I was getting a bit worried as I have this ongoing joke that my boat has never seen a skunk day since it rolled off the lot in summer of 2003, but somehow we manage to avoid the black and white stinky every time. I don't even care if it's me who puts one in the bott as long as at least one comes in it.

 

Finally my buddy Niagara put a little steelie in the boat saving the day, quickly after I commented and commended him for keeping the streak going..pheww!!! :lol:

 

We fished it hard, didn't see any other boats in the spots we tried hook up on anything, I still think it's just too nice out...water has finally dipped into the high 40's but it's still a bit to warm for any big numbers.

 

After spending the morning out there and getting ready to go home, I managed one OOSer greaser for the day, too bad it's not December yet or else I could have added a few nice inches for the Slammers on that one...but hey, I am getting the boat out there and trying guys, I will get one any day now!!!!

 

Quick CPR and off she went back into the drink :Gonefishing:

Some nice fish there indeed!

 

I'm not sure I would classify that pair as 'pretty good guys' though haha!

 

River looks like it is in great condition!
