   Pictured here is James Cleary from Big Flats NY he was fishing on the Niagara River. That's when he caught this rather large Lake Trout That weighed over 17 pounds. This fish was taken on the Niagara Bar in December of 2002. This fish took a bass minnow on a 3 way rig while drifting in about 20 feet of water. This was the first fish of the day what a way to start any fishing trip.

Fishing on the Niagara Bar

   The Niagara River and Bar area is a fish magnet during the winter months. Trout can still be caught in the river in May and June. In the spring the best Salmon fishing is off the Bar then the fish start to migrate back across the lake towards the Salmon River. During the summer the Niagara River and Niagara Bar also have some fantastic Bass, Walleye, and Muskie fishing. There are many guides who charter trips here all year long and target Trout, Bass, Walleyes, and Muskies.

   The average fish caught was in the 10 to 14 pound range.This fish in the photo to the left was taken by vertical jiging a home made jig while drifting over the Niagara Bar.These fish are very aggresive and will hit almost instantly as soon as something hits the bottom. So while drifting it is possible to find active fish very quickly.
