Fishing the Niagara Gorge


The Question

Could you give me tips on how to fish the Niagara river properly from shore? I’ve heard of people bottom bouncing and also float fishing. Any clues as to what kind of tackle I need to buy and what bait to use would be great.

The Answer

Pitviper – I love fishing the Niagara River for trout and salmon. It is awesome. But the super strong current makes rigging properly a real necessity.


I wrote an Outdoor Canada fishing column (An Unlikely Pair of Trout Heros) about it a while ago. Give it a read and shoot me any questions.
