Niagara River/ Bar

The Niagara Bar is legendary in the Great Lakes angling world and the focal point of all spring salmon fishing because of the Niagara River. One look at the Spring Lake Ontario Counties Derby results tells the story: It’s the place to be for salmon and trout.

The lower river has some of the best winter trout fishing in the world. Imagine catching steelhead, browns and lakers all in one drift in a spectacular setting. It doesn’t get any better than this!
