Niagara Falls Ontario

Well it looks like I'm being shipped from BC to Niagara Falls for a few weeks maybe a month for work. I will have sundays off to hopefully fish . Is there any steelhead in the area this time of year? If not what are my options ? Thanks in advance!

Might be some steelhead in by then but there's plenty of other rivers close that'll have steelhead in them for sure. Niagara is pretty cool to fish though! I'll send you a PM later today. Might even be able to show you around a bit if you're interested

When will you be arriving? Right now there aren't going to be any steelhead around (for the most part). Another month, perhaps.

I will be arriving tomorrow ( Wednesday) and will staying at in Niagara Falls during the week. I've been looking on maps and I can see what looks like some tributary's to the north and west , one I believe is called four mile creek am I wrong? Is there anything running in that system. I could bring a water master, is it worth it ?

I am honestly not that familiar with the tribs on the canadian side. I tend to doubt (but I could be wrong) that they are much different than the tribs on the American side which will not have fish yet. I know one popular stream up there is the Grand which may get early fish but I really have no clue. You might be better off warmwater fishing.

I don't think there will be much happening in the steelhead department. I could be wrong but am fairly sure it's too early. You may find some kings and there are lots of bass!

PM me if you want some more details.

Hey km37
If I were you, I'd try the Lower Niagara first. I sent you a PM with some basic info where you could start but be careful down there... steep gorge, big current, super slick rocks, etc. etc. I think it's still a bit too early for migratories in the smaller systems but you never know. Have fun exploring!

As many have eluded to, there will be warm water species in the river.

I don't know if you would want to target them, but depending on your setups, you can target Muskie. They can be found in both the upper and lower Niagara.

With the cooler weather we have been experiencing this summer anything is possible.

There are a few rivers on the North Shore of Lake O that have lots of salmon staging at the mouths. The next good rain can be the one to bring them in.

The nice thing about the rivers here is the species are endless. You can fish the same run in September and get Chinook, Coho, GL Steelhead, Lake run Browns, and tough as nails smallmouth.

One word of caution, the Niagara is one Mighty river. Currents, and water level change by the minute, and the algae is super slippery. Walk with caution.

Do a search on spey pages for "Niagara." A while back there was a great post
with pics on fishing the river.
You old timers will remember the movie "Niagara." Hence the title of the
post. Even had Don Wilson; Jack Benny's announcer in a role. Terrific
Eamn - great last post!

Found it -
