niagara Niagara Falls USA Fishing Forecast for July 17, 2019 from Destination Niagara USA

Recommended Posts

Lake Ontario salmon and trout action has been a little spotty of late and some of it can be blamed on the weather. With Tropical Depression Barry showing up this week, the hottest weather of the season is on our doorstep through the weekend. One sleeper area could be the Niagara Bar as mature kings have been reported this week. Capt. Frank Campbell of Lewiston had some customers looking for some salmon slammin’ and they were rewarded with some mature kings in 100 to 200 feet of water, pulling magnum spoons in greens and white glow spin doctors with green flies behind dipsy divers 30 to 50 feet down. Off Wilson, fishing has actually been pretty good, but information was tough to come by with the Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon Association events taking place Friday and Saturday this week. Some bigger fish are available. Robyn Wolf of Wilson came close to the top prize with a 27 pound, 15 ounce king that is currently in second place in the Salmon Division. She was fishing out of her home port with Capt. Mike Johannes of On the Rocks and caught the fish on a magnum spoon. Darker colors have been working. Capt. Tim Sylvester of Tough Duty was fishing out of Olcott on Monday and hit a 28-plus pound king on a 400 copper line with meat. However, the person that caught the fish was not in the LOC Derby currently going on.  He was fishing in 300-plus feet of water. Karen Evarts at The Boat Doctors in Olcott says try fishing a little east of Olcott in 400 to 450 feet of water or a little west off the red barn in 315-375 feet of water.  The new Grand Prize leader is 29 pounds, 6 ounces.  The derby ends on July 28.
