Niagara River Guides Client Testamonials

Hello Niagara River Guides,

I have fished with Captain John and chartered his boat for Corporate clients, friends, and family. We've fished in the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter for multiple species (Western New York State provides this type of fishing). All trips were productive and enjoyable. He's a hard working captain that takes his job seriously and really provides you with a great fishing experience. What he doesn't provide, nature does. The lower Niagara, anytime of year, is a great place to fish.

Captain John has a great fishing boat designed for the area and high quality fishing equipment to get the fish in the boat! He is very knowledgeable of what the area has to offer. I recommend that you give Captain John a call and discuss what type of fishing experience you are looking for.

"Hello Niagara River Guides,

I just want to say thank you again for the best day of fishing I ever had. I never would have thought that we would have caught over 30 Walleye in 2 and a half hours, followed up by 20-30 big Smallmouth. I can't wait to come up to Buffalo and fish with you again. As long as you are a guide, you have a customer in me.

Dear Captain John and Vincent,

My Son, Daniel and I would like to thank you from the bottom of heart for the most amazing 2 day fishing trip we have ever been on. This was our first trip to the Niagara River and I assure you, God willing, we are planning on being regulars for years to come.

We are already planning our next trip back up on the Niagara River when my youngest Son, David returns from deployment in Afghanistan with USMC 3rd RECON Battalion later this month.

I have always believed that you get what you pay for in life and you didn't disappoint us. When you "limit out" in the first hour on the river, it's hard to imagine that the fishing could have gotten any better . . . but it did . . it got exponentially better. When we were catching 4-5 beautiful Browns and Steelheads while other boats on the river with us were not catching any or landing only 1, I knew I had chosen the right Captain.

In my opinion, your patience and knowledge is unsurpassed. I have been on many fishing charters in my life but yours is definitely the top of the line. Your Son Vincent is an amazing young man and a very good guide in his own right and you should be very proud of him. He's got the best teacher and Father around. You and Vincent made us feel like we were part of your family and for this I am extremely grateful. In closing, I look forward to making the trip up north again soon. I wish you a safe trip down to Pittsburgh to see the Sabres play the Penguins later this month. Hoping you have fun and enjoy the city. I love the Pens but I hope the Sabres win for you when you're down here in Pittsburgh. Once again, our trip was truly the most amazing fishing trip I have EVER been on. We are hoping to take part in some winter Steelhead fishing in the near future.

To whom it My concern,

I have been fishing with John for the past eleven years and have always had productive trips. He is the best on the river. Over the years that I have fished with him we have had a few days when fishing was tough but we catch fish when other guides and boats have not. The lower river is a remarkable fishery but it sure helps to fish with someone that really knows it and allows you to be maximally productive with the time you spend on the river

To whom it My concern,

I have fished with John for 25 years with customers, friends and family. John's knowledge of the fishery in western New York has made a book full of memorable experiences for all of us. We have fished for steelhead, salmon, bass, walleye, and muskies, and my customers and friends still talk about the experiences. Many are regular repeat customers now at Niagara River Guide Service. Don't look any further if you want to catch fish, learn about the area, and have a day full of action and a good time! Don't hesitate to email or call me if you need a reference.

To whom it My concern,

I fished Lake Ontario Niagara River Fishing Charters In March of 2010. Captain John put us right on the fish (in the Niagara River) both days. Steelheads, lakers and brown trout - all of good size. John knows how to catch them and has all the right equipment! Fabulous trip! In fact, the trip was so enjoyable that a few months later I booked a trip out on Lake Ontario for August to take my elderly father. Dad had always wanted to fish the Great Lakes but had never been able to get there. John took special care of him. We hardly had the lines in the water before John had my dad onto his first steelhead; a nice 10 lb+ fish. After that, we were into the king salmon. John's a great guy and a great captain. My dad and I will never forget John's making his dream come true! Of course, I did have a bit of difficulty giving away all those salmon and steelhead filets! See you soon John!

Dear John,

Just wanted to thank you for all the great trips over the years. We have been with you on the lake and in the river and the trips are always the best. Nothing beats the Fall Salmon run for seasonal beauty and the Winter Steelhead trips have brought us many a fond memory. Trophy Bass season in the Spring is always on our calendar as well. We have always had great trips with both yourself the guides you work with, like Gordy and Roy, who have always treated us great and put us on fish as well. See you sometime soon and don't catch them all before we get there.
