Day 2 from the Niagara River. Going into this trip we knew the wind was going to be severe on this day and in turn the water clarity would diminish and the fishing would likely become futile. We explored the river and decided to try fishing this spot, thankfully we ran into a local who showed us the way down through the gorge to the water. The flow of the river in this stretch was amazing, super fast powerful current and treacherous rapids, so treacherous that they are labeled some of the most dangerous and extreme in the world. I got lucky to catch 2 Steelhead alongside one of the most insane riffles I have ever seen, in the murky water before moving to different spots and skunking out the rest of the day. Brennan also managed a fish on the fly rod which in itself is a miracle. Aside from those 2 fish this video is fairly lackluster, and if you watch to the end you see that the following day we abandoned the Niagara in hopes of having better luck in some smaller tributaries which likely weren't effected by the strong winds. The next 2 videos to come are pretty epic.... stay tuned.
(I hate the clickbait too but we live in a capitalist society and this is life. In fact this isnt really even click bait... if you google most dangerous rapids in the world, the niagara river whirlpool pops up...)
