Niagara Fishing & Outdoors

Let the great outdoors "reel" you in with World Class Fishing!

Once the water plummets over Niagara Falls, another attraction is realized that will also bring visitors into the region 365 days a year - world class sport-fishing.  River waters serve as a magnet for a wide variety of fish species  including salmon, trout, bass, walleye, muskellunge and much more. The entire stretch of river below the falls as well as out into Lake Ontario, is a perfect habitat for these underwater torpedoes.  The Region is a harbinger to some of the finest freshwater fishing in the world.
