[nggallery id=358]It’s hard for me to fish anywhere else other than Port Dalhousie, ON right now because the fishing is so good for trophy brown trout. Mark Armitage, Mulligan, and I arrived on-site this morning around 6:45am and we literally got the last two parking spots. Port Dalhousie was packed! Nonetheless, anglers continues to catch lot’s of intermediate and huge browns up to the mid-teens. We chose to fish off the rocks again and started-off using fresh tied brown trout spawn sacks that Aldo Nava from www.niagarafishingadventures.com , had tied up for me.
This was Marks first time bottom-bouncing on the east-side of Port Dalhousie, ON for browns and he ended up landing two nice male fish. His biggest was around 7lb.. I ended up landing a 4 lb. female brown. Tony Valeri, from Welland, ON landed so many browns that we lost count. As you can see form the images, lot’s of big fish are being caught. Most of the fish are either getting caught on small, fresh brown trout egg-sacks tied in bright yellow netting, small yarn-flies, or a combination of small Lil-Corki floaters fished with both spawn-sacks or yarn. I again used the new Rapala Classic Trout 6 1/2 & 7′ spinning rods with the Rapala R-Type reel and Sufix 100% Castable Fluorocarbon line. Mark used a 9 1/2′ Rapala North Coast Steelhead Rod equipped with a Rapala spinning reel and also loaded with the Sufix Fluorocarbon line. Just a reminder that you can purchase all of the right bottom bouncing gear and much, much more at Pete’s Tackle on Secord St., St. Catharines.
Tomorrow we are planning on checking out the Lower Niagara with Aldo Nava. Aldo had a charter today and caught lot’s of lakers & rainbows fishing spawn-sacks down the Art Park drift on the NY-side of the Lower Niagara River. He reports that the water was clear and the fishing was consistent all day. If you would like to book a guided fishing trip with Aldo, you can contact him through his website, above.
