Niagara River, Ontario

Location: Niagara River, Ontario
GPS: N43º 11.980′ – W79º 03.106′
Species: Steelhead, Brown Trout, Lake Trout

This Hotspot is a rare and easily accessible open water fishery during the cold winter months. This is a turn (point) in the Niagara River that will concentrate Steelhead, Brown Trout and sometimes Lake Trout.

Bottom-bounce either roe bags or minnows along with the current, trying to keep your presentation as close to the boat as possible.

If you’re planning a trip to the Niagara, make sure that the days ahead of your trip are not full of blustering wind. If Lake Erie gets churned up, it spills through the Niagara making fishing very tough. Keep an eye on the weather.
