[nggallery id=355]Water conditions were murky on the Niagara River today and the fishing for migratory trout was tougher there. Port Dalhousie, ON continues to have good water conditions and is producing trophy browns about every 1/2 hr., throughout the day. Most anglers are fishing 3-way bottom-bouncing rigs along the bottom and trying to fish the current break. Top producing bait today was bright yellow spawn sacks tied-up just smaller than the diameter of a dime.
I had a chance to test the new Rapala Classic Trout Series spinning rods in the 6 1/2′ & 7′ models matched with R-Type spinning reels and they both performed well. My line of choice was the Sufix 100% Fluorocarbon Castable line. My hook, a Gamagatsu #8 Octypus. The Sufix Fluorocarbon line is a little stiffer than monofilament line, but not as stiff as the Sufix Fluorocarbon leader material which makes it ideal for feeling the bottom, but still gives you just the right amount of stretch when fighting head-shaking and rolling migratory trout.
