Niagara Chinooks still hitting Rapala J13’s.Posted on October 23rd, 2009
I had the chance of fishing with George Hatcher and his son-inlaw, Shane this morning at the base of Niagara Falls. It was cold, windy and wet, but we managed to hook-up on one female Chinook salmon that hit a Rapala J13 in the fluorescent orange/gold color. The water was still murky, and we only saw a few salmon roll on the surface, so they were pretty much inactive. Chinooks in the Lake Ontario tributaries will soon be done, so the next few weeks will be the last chance to really hook-up on striking fish.
