  5. The 8th annual Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo, set to be held at the Conference and Event Center Niagara Falls on February 19-21, has announced that it will cancel the event for 2021 and start planning for 2022 due to COVID-19.Because of the rescheduling, Expo coordinators felt that it was a good time to shift into a February time frame (2/17 - 2/20) from the normal mid-January date when the show has run in the past. In addition, another day has been added to the show, giving it 4 days for everyone to enjoy all of the fishing education this “Teaching Fishing” show offers. The LOTSA Salmon School will also be back, bigger and better than ever, and is scheduled for Saturday February 19, 2022. The date change to February is a result of many requests to move the show closer to the Spring Fishing season. This should allow more people to attend, increase sales for the Exhibitors and deliver more fishing education. It also removes any conflicts with the NFL playoffs (think Bills playing on the Saturday of the show in January) and hopefully provides better weather. The show has experienced some of the worst winter weather of the year in each of it 7 years so hopefully the February date will bring better weather. Here is the full press release https://niagarafishingexpo.com/press-release/
  6. Due to COVID-19, the date for the LOTSA Salmon School has changed to Saturday February 20, 2021 and the Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo dates are now February 19 - 21, 2021. Check out the details at https://niagarafishingexpo.com/press-release/
  7. The preliminary schedule for the Open Lake Trout & Salmon Fishing seminars consisting of over 35 free seminars during the show (January 17 - 19) is now available on the show web site under the Education tab at www.niagarafishingexpo.com
  8. About 6 weeks remain before the opening of the Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo on January 17th at 1 pm. This show is known as the "Teaching Fishing" which is what makes it unique from other events of this kind. The show facility - the Conference and Event Center Niagara Falls - provides a unique blend of being able to offer a spacious Exhibitor Event Center, as well as a multitude of seminar rooms all utilizing "State of the Art" technology. The show utilizes these rooms plus the Hawg Trough to deliver up to 18 classes run concurrently, each targeting different topics/levels of expertise. The classes are taught by local and regional experts very knowledgeable in fishing the Western and Central NY waterways. New for this year, each class will be developed for a specific level of expertise including: 1. Beginner / Casual Level - The angler who is just starting out or who has limited knowledge on the topic. Attending these classes will dramatically shorten the learning curve and provide the opportunity for attendees to save some "Tackle $$" by purchasing what is needed to get started. 2. Experienced Level - The angler with some experience on the topic who is looking to pick up additional knowledge from more experienced anglers that will enable them to make tweaks to their program to increase their success. 3. Expert / Tournament Angler - The "diehard" angler who is looking to increase their knowledge and skills on the topic by taking "advanced" classes taught by some of the best of the best anglers on the water. The 2020 show will offer attendees the opportunity to attend over 200 free classes over the 3 days of the show. The 2019 show saw attendees taking the opportunity to increase their fishing knowledge by attending on average over 5 classes during the duration of the Expo. The core belief of the show is that it is making a difference toward the effort to grow the sport of fishing by providing a vast amount of fishing education to our attendees. By providing this education, this show will recruit new anglers, including the next generation, to the sport as well as providing existing anglers the fishing knowledge to increase their enjoyment of the time they spend on the water by being more successful. The education also allows anglers to diversify to include other species and tactics if they so desire. The 2020 curriculum of all free classes is guaranteed to improve your skills. The curriculum includes classes on the following: 1. Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon 2. Lake Erie & Inland Lake Walleye 3. Lake Erie, Ontario & Inland Lakes Bass 4. Lake Ontario & Erie Tributary Trout 5. Lake Erie & Inland Lakes Perch 6. Marine Electronics & Boat Rigging 7. Kayak Fishing 8. Fly Fishing 9. Casting Techniques 10. Youth Fishing 11. Fisheries Management / General Fishing The full schedules will be available at www.niagarafishingexpo.com beginning the middle of December.
  9. Here is a link to check out Steve Hurst talking about the DEC Open House at the Show: http://trms.lctv.net/CablecastPublicSite/show/5083?channel=1
  10. The Greater Niagara Fishing and Outdoor Expo is proud to announce that the State’ Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will be increasing their participation in the 2020 Greater Niagara Fishing and Outdoor Expo this coming January 17 – 19, 2020. Anglers who fish in New York's Great Lakes and inland waters would like to have more interaction with the decision-makers and the biologists who manage these waterways. The same could be said for those same decision-makers and biologists. They would like to have more interaction with the stakeholders and users of the resources to help the public understand those management practices. They would also like to receive more input from the anglers themselves to help with their management decisions going forward. The most exciting aspect of this DEC expansion is a unique "Open House" that will have subject matter experts from different aspects of the Bureau of Fisheries in one large room for three hours on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Included in this will be stations focusing on Lake Ontario Open Lake and Tributaries; Lake Erie Open Lake and Tributaries; Niagara River; Great Lakes Fish Production and Stocking; Finger Lakes; Inland Streams; DEC Law Enforcement; and Angling Opportunities for Women. This will provide attendees the opportunity to walk in whenever it is convenient for them and talk with the experts’ 1 on 1 in a very casual setting. In addition, each winter and spring, DEC conducts State of the Lake meetings to initiate public outreach and give updates on what's happening with a particular body of water - Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Salmon River, Finger Lakes. They are often at a time when many anglers cannot attend. This Show is a perfect opportunity for anglers to see what's happening with the bodies of water you fish and ask questions to better understand the dynamics for a particular lake, river or inland stream. Abbreviated versions (one hour) of the State of the Lake meetings for Erie and Ontario will be available on opening night (Friday). If you participate in the popular LOTSA Salmon School, many of the top fisheries decision-makers will be on hand to mingle with Salmon School attendees on Friday night after the “State of Lake Ontario” session for a special "Meet and Greet." It's a great way to get up close and personal with the likes of Steve Hurst, DEC's Chief of the Bureau of Fisheries, Steve LaPan, DEC's Great Lakes Section Head, Chris Legard, the Lake Ontario Unit Leader and Jason Robinson, the Lake Erie Unit Leader. Some of these same individuals will also be included with some of the top seminar speakers. Last year, Hurst became part of a seminar with Capt. Bob Songin and they complemented each other very well over the course of the presentation. They plan to expand those efforts this January. You can check out the details on the show at www.niagarafishingexpo.com Fishing Flyer Great Lakes 2020.pdf

From bass and walleye to salmon and trout; from perch to piers, stream casters to trolling nuts; from fly fishing to ice fishing, from marine electronics to boat rigging; from fishing boats to kayak Fishing - there is a little bit if everything for every type of angler and level of expertise.

The Show Facility - the Conference and Event Center Niagara Falls - provides a unique blend of a spacious Exhibitor Event Center and a multitude of seminar rooms all utilizing "State of the Art" technology. The show utilizes these rooms plus the Hawg Trough to deliver up to 18 classes (run concurrently) each targeting different topics / levels of expertise.

We have three excellent Instructors who will provide their knowledge and insights on what makes them successful in catching Kings throughout the 6 hours of instruction.

Registrations have been open for the School for a month and we are already 50% full. If you are thinking of attending, please don’t wait long to make your decision to sign up as we expect to sell out even faster than we did last year (early December) which was our earliest ever. We turned away a significant number of individuals last year after we were full. Also, we will have the $69 room rate at the Sheraton again until they are sold out. You can check out the full show which is loaded with Trout & Salmon Exhibitors, along with signing up for the School and your hotel room at www.niagarafishingexpo.com.

  23. Whether you’re an avid ice fisherman or an Lake Erie perch angler looking for alternative baits when live Emerald Shiners are scarce, this is a “must see” clinic from one of the best fishing minds in the business. Scott Brauer of Gasport, NY is a professional angler and the owner of Maki Plastics, an innovative ice fishing bait company. He is an Ice Team Pro Staffer for Clam Outdoors. Scott spends much of his time travelling the ice belt promoting the great sport of ice fishing. It’s not uncommon to see Scott at just about any ice fishing venue, especially here in Western New York where he conduction on-ice clinics and in-store promotions involving hard water angling. Scott will be presenting the following clinic: Finessing Techniques with Plastics Clinic Saturday, January 20th – 1:30 –3:30 | $20 Fee | Walleye Trolling Room *Tickets can be purchased online thru this site or in person at the Show ticket Booth at the entrance. Plastics are Fantastic, whether thru the ice or in open water including Lake Erie Perch. "Matching the Hatch" is a phrase often kicked around in the fishing world, the expression comes from the fisherman's attempt to imitate natural insects with artificial imitations in order to fool fish. Fish often ignore all other bait offerings and get lock jaw during major hatches- getting familiar with the bugs, insects, larvae and nymphs that are present in a lake is quite simply a process that is not hard to master, and is a necessary skill for the serious angler. During this class we will examine lake biology, insect hatch timeline, baits and delivery tools and matching the right rod and reel to increase your catch all year long. Scott Brauer is the brain child behind Makiplastic Bait, an aquatic insect nerd and national award winning educator. He will lead participants through questions from the class and add in lessons from fish including underwater video of how fish react to what we are doing above. There will be giveaways from all of his sponsors throughout this in-depth look at how to fish plastics and how to fool even lockjaw fish!
