Reeling in the Big One

Freshwater surrounds Buffalo; two Great Lakes and the Niagara River connecting them make for an angler’s paradise.

The region has some of the best smallmouth bass, musky, king salmon, steelhead, walleye and lake trout fishing in the world. In fact, fantastic fishing can be found only minutes from downtown Buffalo’s many hotels. Within a short drive from the city, anglers can fish Lakes Erie and Ontario, the mighty Niagara River, Chautauqua Lake and numerous trout streams.

How good is the fishing? Lake Erie has been called the smallmouth bass capital of the world and Buffalo Harbor is one of the best kept secrets in the world of musky fishing. Lake Erie is also an excellent walleye fishery. Trophy fish are routinely taken here.

Plan a media fam with VBN to head out onto our waters with a local fishing charter captain and reel in the big one!
