Priceless Niagara river experience
After years of collecting information (from pages like: Rainbow Trout, Where to Go - Further Afield: Niagara River, Fish Ontario! | Articles | Ten Great trout rivers, Niagara Fishing Forum -> Fishing Forum, Health Canada. 2000b. Great River Resource: "A Profile of Shoreline Fishing and Fish Consumption in the Niagara River Area". 54pp.) and some serious shopping, I finally went stealheading to Niagara Canyon.

Very little action. Only guys with fluorocarbon leaders were getting some hits, the rest of us were being ignored by finicky fish... Had I got at least one out, it would have been my best fishing trip, because everything else was so nice: fall colors, clear water, steelheads jumping out, warm day in November... just perfect!

Cattaraugus Creek, My Steelhead
Flooding at Zoar Valley
Zoar Valley NY, is a very dangerous place! ESPECIALLY when the water is high!: "On September 9th Thursday, 2004 the Gowanda and Zoar Valley area got the remnants of 'Hurricane Francis'. In the Gowanda NY area it was just a rainstorm. However the Cattaragus Creek and the South Branch rose to within 1' of the official 'flood stage' They measure that on the Gowanda Gage as being 10', whereas, just a few days before, The creek was at a level (Gowanda Gage) of 1.40'..."
World Class Flyfishing Opportunities
The Flyfishing Connection: "In the Lake Ontario and Erie tributaries, anglers can find themselves latched onto trophy trout or salmon measured in pounds, not ounces! Not that the quality of the experience should be judged by strained scales or strung out measuring tapes, but the remarkable truth is that flyfishers can have a quality outing and the World Class fish are just a consequence. Imagine the legitimate chance to hook 15 pound brown trout or steelhead, 30 pound chinooks and 15 pound cohos! It can happen for the flyfisher during the Fall, Winter and Spring tributary migrations. Read on for a river by river account of western NY tributary opportunities."
