everyone has heard of. The less notorious Niagara River running through the falls serves as a conduit connecting the Great Lakes of Erie and Ontario. The joining of these two bodies of water creates a spectacular fishing destination. In addition to Lakes Ontario and Erie there are many local inland bodies of water that offer great fishing opportunities to avid fishermen.

The Greater Niagara Fishing and Outdoor Expo is a celebration of local fishing and outdoor lifestyle that our area is so engulfed in. This expo will include the latest in fishing and outdoor gear, boats, RV’s, ATV’s, lodges, guides, hunting equipment, as well as many more outdoor related events and products. With various fishing activities 365 days a year, the Greater Niagara Fishing and Outdoor Expo 2014 will be a day to remember.

New to this year, The Bass University’s On-Water Training trips are customized to fit each student’s needs. Beginner to advanced, Bass University’s instructors will work with each student angler prior to the trip to develop a program that is designed to move their fishing knowledge and skill-set to the next level. On-Water Training instructors will contact their students prior to the trip to develop a custom training strategy. The instructors will focus on the lessons and techniques that will drastically improve their student’s fishing skills and knowledge! Following each training day, a practice program will be developed for each student to work on and continue to develop as an angler. Each student will have access to their instructor following the trip to ask questions as they continue their training. On-Water Training is the best and fastest way to develop good angling skills that last a lifetime!
