Welcome to Niagara USA, an outdoor playground that offers outdoors enthusiasts not only a world-class sport fishery, but also hiking, birding, boating and other fresh-air adventures to keep you busy all year long! While Niagara Falls itself is the natural phenomenon millions associate with every year, the same waters create an amazing experience that thousands of sport and professional anglers enjoy every year. Every species of fish that swims in the Great Lakes-from trophy trout and salmon to stellar smallmouth bass, walleye and muskellunge-can be found here amidst our spectacular scenery.
The mighty Niagara River joins two Great Lakes - Ontario and Erie - and the Erie Canal affords other fishing opportunities, which is why Niagara USA is globally recognized for its fishing and why Olcott Beach was voted the "Ultimate Fishing Town" in 2012 by the World Fishing Network. The fishing landscape can be separated into four distinct fishing regions. Review each region below so you can plan your fishing trip and bring the right gear:
Whether you hire a charter captain, bring your own boat or fish from shore, Niagara USA offers options for every level of experience. If you're land bound, you'll find great shore fishing in the Niagara Gorge, Burt Dam and the lower portion of 18 Mile Creek. Pick up a copy of the Greater Niagara Hot Spot Fishing Map to help plan your adventure.
A weekly fishing report is currently recorded at (877) FALLS-US.
