Niagara River
Water conditions on the Niagara River are ok today, but expect turbid conditions with the weekend's wind and rain. When conditions have permitted, lower river boaters have seen a good trout bite in the drifts near Lewiston, down near the mouth of river and out on the Niagara Bar. River anglers are catching primarily steelhead with some brown trout and the occasional walleye mixed in. Controlled drifting with three-way rigs with live shiners, egg sacs or trout beads has worked well for trout. Walleye are more apt to hit rigs with shiners. Shore anglers in the gorge are catching decent numbers of steelhead. All angler access (platform, stairs to shoreline, parking lot) at the NYPA Power Vista are closed for the winter season as of Dec.1.

Lake Erie Tributaries
It seems as creeks have been running high more days than not this "winter". But when the creeks have been in fishable shape, the steelhead bite has been pretty good. Some fresh steelhead have been scattered around the streams too. Most creeks were in good shape at daybreak today, but are already on the rise. With plenty of rain in the weekend forecast, another blow out is imminent. Fly anglers typically target winter steelhead by drifting egg patterns, trout beads, nymphs and woolly buggers. Egg sacs, trout beads and jigs are common offerings by spinning or center pin anglers.

Detroit River: The bluegill bite was starting to slow as the perch bite starts to pick up. A few nice fish have been caught, but anglers were sorting through a lot of small ones. Shore anglers could be found in the cuts, canals and marinas with minnows, wax worms and spikes.

Lake Erie: When the winds allowed, boat anglers were still getting walleye, especially in Brest Bay when trolling bandits 50 to 80 feet back. Water levels were high on the River Raisin.

I think with the temps coming up we will get at least some walkable ice - hopefully.

My trip to Simcoe is Jan 25th for the weekend with 4 of my buddies - sounds like good reports coming out of cooks bay so far!!

Its true looks like another season with no ice. Lots of guys i know headed to Simcoe. They have ice in places and the jumbos there is worth the drive. Its cold this week the marinas and canals will be fishable again just stay away from creeks and runoffs.
