Niagara River mouth producing mix of trout & salmon.

Posted on May 20th, 2017

The Nigara River and where it flows into Lake Ontario is an amazing place to fish all year long. Right now Michael Jordan Colton has been going out steady and catching a mix of trout and salmon. Lakers always tend to feed either close to the Niagara Bar, or in the deeper surrounding water. Over the years their average size has increased and now it’s common to land Lake Trout in the 10-20 lb. range trolling lures, or vergical jigging in the water column.


Chinooks are moving on and off there now feeding on smelt that have come out of the Lower Niagara and Emerald Shiners that tend to feed on and around the Bar all season long. If you cross paths with one it will smash your lure since they are aggressively feeding.


Brown trout also frequently feed on the Bar and if they are not on the sharp drop-offs they can also be caught in front of Fort Niagara and off the Niagara-on-the-lake shorelines!
