Niagara River Kicking Out Big Browns

2018-12-21T15:52:25-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer After the first two drifts Ted Kessler looked worried. His energy level fell from excited to perplexed. Following a month of world-class brown trout fishing, Kessler expected the Niagara River browns to bite on our first drift. They didn’t. Unfortunately, they didn’t on our second drift, either. “I’m not marking anything,” Kessler, [...]

Niagara River Salmon Run Peaking Now

2018-10-16T09:49:43-07:00

By: Ted Kessler The salmon run started slow on the Niagara River, but it’s at par right now. We are seeing the same success we had last season, which is good. The last week or so has been really good. We are hooking roughly six to eight salmon per trip. Some days it’s even better. [...]

Niagara River “Spring” Steelhead Update

2018-04-18T18:56:07-07:00

By: Ted Kessler Even though our March was slower than normal due to Arctic like weather we are looking forward to good spring fishing as weather patterns stabilize and the river gradually warms. I’d say our steelhead run on the Niagara River this year has been average, which is good. Given the current conditions I [...]

Niagara River Salmon: Best in a Decade

2018-04-18T18:57:08-07:00

By: Frank Campbell We’ve had the best salmon fishing in about 10 years. The number fish in the Niagara River has been as good as it’s been in more than a decade. That doesn’t mean we are going to knock it out of the park daily, but you are going to have opportunities that we [...]

Niagara Steelhead to Show Through May

2018-04-18T18:58:19-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer In Buffalo to film Lake Erie smallmouth bass fishing with live Fire Dye minnows I got a call from Frank Campbell of Niagara Region Charter Service Monday asking me if I wanted to go fishing. He said there were still plenty of steelhead and lake trout in the Lower Niagara River and [...]

Niagara River Fishing Well – When Water is Clear

2018-04-18T18:58:47-07:00

By: Ted Kessler It’s been one of the toughest steelhead seasons I’ve seen in at least 20 years on the Lower Niagara River. We need ice on Lake Erie for our season to be good and this is the second season in a row we haven’t had ice. If there’s ice on Erie, Lake Erie [...]

Niagara River Salmon Run Peaking Now

2018-04-18T18:59:45-07:00

By: Frank Campbell The Niagara River salmon run started slow due to record warm water coming from Lake Erie, which led to a delay in the salmon looking to return to our river. The beginning of our run took a hit because of record warm temperatures. However, at the end of the September we got [...]

Learn A Perfect Brine For Niagara River Salmon

2018-04-18T18:59:47-07:00

By: Ted Kessler My go-to egg curing method hasn’t changed in a few years. More than 85 percent of the salmon we catch come on what I call the Niagara River Brine. I mix plain borax and blend three colors of Fire Cure and it gives us an egg the salmon key in on. More [...]

Straddle The US/Canadian Border for Niagara River Steelhead & Lake Trout

2018-04-18T19:02:14-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Frank Campbell’s rod was bent almost in half and I scurried to grab the video camera as line continued to peel off the reel. Floating down the middle of the Niagara River the way this fish was fighting and taking us into heavy, turbulent current I was sure this was going to [...]

2018-04-18T19:02:41-07:00

By: Frank Campbell While anglers on the eastern end of Lake Ontario have been complaining of poor steelhead fishing things have been pretty good here on the western end at the Niagara River. Keep in mind, the nice thing around here is we are getting a good mix of fish. There’s a lot of lake [...]
