niagara Niagara Falls USA Fishing Forecast for Oct. 17, 2018 from Destination Niagara USA

Recommended Posts

Lower Niagara River salmon fishing is still going on and some trout are starting to move in. There are salmon and trout at Burt Dam, too, but things have been hot and cold, depending on whom you talk to. Karen Evarts at the Boat Doctors in Olcott reports only fair action off the piers, usually early morning or at dusk for spoon and spinner casters. There has been quite a few salmon and trout being reported off the Route 425 pier and don’t rule out the Wilson piers off the main harbor for browns and steelhead with an outside shot at an occasional salmon. Egg imitations will also work at any of these spots. A pink bead worked for one angler on 18 Mile Creek for a beautiful Atlantic salmon. At the dam in Burt, brown trout top the list of preferred targets, followed by steelhead and salmon. Practice catch and release when you can. Small boaters have been fishing some of the deeper holes with egg skein and picking a few salmon up, too. Trolling with J13 Rapalas is another option in the creeks at Olcott and Wilson. In the lake, there aren’t too many people heading out but fishing can be good out deep (over 300 foot depths)  for a mix of salmon and trout. Staging fish off the creek mouth has been limited so far at Wilson and Olcott.
