This outfitter fishes the greater Niagara Region in western New York, featuring the upper and lower Niagara River and Lake Erie and its tributaries. While there are a plethora of species one can pursue here, we maintain that this region holds the very best population of trophy smallmouth in the U.S., with fish averaging around 3 pounds and much larger fish a distinct possibility on your next cast.
Conventional tackle and fly fishermen will both find great opportunities here. Boats are spacious enough to fish three anglers, though two fishermen per trip is recommended.
Fishing methods employed typically target fish that are hugging structure or staging along the various bottom edges and current breaks that afford them ambush opportunities for their preferred forage; Alewives, crayfish, and an assortment of various other baitfish make up the menu.
Ned rigs, crankbaits, jigs and a variety of swimbaits and soft plastics are utilized on the conventional side, and Clouser minnows, and a variety of streamers and poppers are productive for those using fly rods.
