Niagara River Brown Trout.Posted on December 21st, 2022
Our good friends John and Connor Grdosic are taking advantage of mild late fall weather conditions and fishing the Lower Niagara River as much as they can before the weather starts to get really cold.
They have been catching a mix of Lake Trout, Steelhead and Brown Trout and recently caught some very colorful fish.
Post-spawn Brown Trout take well as they start feeding again and heading back out to Lake Ontario.
Drifting the current/structure breaks with streamers, roe bags, single salmon egg imitations, plastic 3″ minnows and live minnows is the best way to catch them in Dec. and early Jan. As winter progresses most of them will be heading back out to the lake where boat anglers will be taking advantage of trolling for them in-shore using spoons and crankbaits.
Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our www.canadian-sportfishing.com website.
