Niagara Fish Assassin Sportfishing – River

Straddle the Canada – US border along the fast-flowing and thrilling Niagara River with Niagara Fish Assassin Sportfishing. Heading south from Queenston, you’ll be going after a range of exciting, and downright delicious Trout. These fish know no borders, and Captain Mark Defoy is committed to helping you get as many as possible on the boat. Having fished all his life, his passion is unrivaled, and you may just catch the bug with him.

Aboard a 20’ Stanley center console, you’ll have maximum vision of the waters around you and plenty of room to steady yourself and move around as you try to reel in your catch.

With a cooler on board, you’re invited to bring snacks and drinks to keep you replenished throughout the day.

Trout is the king of these waters and you’ll be drift fishing as you work your way south for the stunning Rainbow Trout, the great game Brown Trout, and the tasty Lake Trout. All three are tantalizing tablefare, and Capt. Mark will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home. Using the latest rods, reels, and tackle, you’ll get to utilize a range of fishing techniques, with the captain at hand to help even the most inexperienced of anglers.

Having fished the waters of the Great Lakes and surrounding rivers since childhood, Capt. Mark is just the guy to provide some invaluable local knowledge, and to get you on the fish. Whether it’s a good old-fashioned father-son bonding day out, a party with pals, or trying to impress a date, Niagara Fish Assassin Sportfishing has you covered.
