I got out for a few hours Monday morning. I fished the lower niagara just after dawn from the kayak. It's about the only time you can comfortable fish the big river in the kayak as once the boats get out and the breeze picks up it get too choppy for me. It's fine to paddle still but not really to fish since you need to pay attention to rollers and make sure you don't take them broadside. Any way the fish are most active in the morning this time of year so it works. I got two nice smallies on three casts back to back at about the 1 hour mark... nothing before and nothing after, I used a really big black bunny (about 5") streamer hoping to attract the odd pike or musky but only bass.

Pretty Brown bass fer sure.
I was looking at that clear water and was wondering if the bluegill spawn shallow enough for you to see them. Of course, it would be far easier to see down into the water if you were standing in a bass boat.
Sight fishing is big fun in moderately clear water

Thanks guys yeah the smallies get big and they fight hard.

JT the water is very clear sometimes too clear i mean 15 to 20 foot viz sometimes. I’m actually not sure about the pan fish beds I’m sure they are in there but I’ve nver caught them. I need to look into that. There is a really good yellow perch population so maybe some of the guys who target them get some bream too.
