Niagara Falls Fishing (NRGS)

Niagara River Guide Service invites you aboard to see the world-famous Niagara Falls from a whole new perspective. One of the longest-running and most respected charter services in the region, they cater to all types of anglers. Join them for a summertime fishing trip on the Niagara River, targeting a wide range of fish in a world class fishery.

The Niagara Falls are just as spectacular for anglers as they are for tourists. The waterfalls themselves and the rapids below them cause the river downstream to be extremely rich in oxygen. This attracts large numbers of bait fish, which in turn draw all types of gamefish into the area. Everything from Walleye, Perch, and Smallmouth Bass to Steelhead can be found in these waters during the summertime, and NRGS knows what it takes to catch them.

Your trip will start from Niagara Falls Boat Launch, on a peaceful waterway sheltered by Cayuga Island. From there, you will be fishing the Niagara River, targeting the area’s top sport fish as they make their way to and from Lake Erie. Most of your trip will involve drifting and casting, with high quality Diawa and Shimano equipment provided at no additional cost. 

You will be fishing aboard a fully equipped Lund fishing boat, powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine. The boat is fitted with a trolling motor and downriggers to access the full potential of these rich waters. What better way to experience the beautiful scenery of upstate New York?

Whatever your previous fishing experience, join Niagara River Guide Service for a day out to remember. Let them customize an experience just for you and fish one of the world’s most iconic waterways with the experts!

I've been fishing since my teens and I have been guiding for thirty-four years. I have caught thousands of trophy fish so my greatest satisfaction comes from helping others to catch that trophy fish that they couldn't on their own.
