[nggallery id=668]The weather man was right again. We experienced an excellent day on the water while shooting a trophy migratory brown & rainbow trout TV show on the Lower Niagara River out of Queenston, ON. I met Aldo Nava who operates, www.niagarafishingadventures.com around 8:15am along with the camera crew and Dave Morrison who was our camera boat operator for the day. We got miked-up and were off to the same run on the Canadian-side of the Lower Niagara where we pre-fished yesterday and caught a half-dozen rainbows. The local anglers refer to it as the “pipeline” drift. This name comes from the submerged natural gas pipeline that runs from one side of the river to the other.
Our equipment consisted of the Rapala North Coast Steelhead Rods matched with Rapala Seeker spinning reels and R-Type baitcasters. Our line of choice was the Sufix Deep Cranking (a sinking monofilament line), the Sufix Seige (Tangerine colored line), and of course, Sufix 6 lb. test fluorocarbon leaders. For our presentation we drifted live minnows which we caught with a dip net at the boat launch, spawn sacks, streamers and TriggerX single eggs. To land & release all our fish properly we used the Lucky Strike Live Release Basket Net.
Aldo hooked all of the fish which included 3-nice brown trout and two nice rainbows. Make sure to see all the action when this programs airs in the new TV season starting this coming November.
