The water level in Welland is pretty high and murky in season. Also you get alot of new yorkers fishing Welland in their off season when they are looking for bass. There are stories of a few poachers fishing for bass off season and being fined and towed. The pike fishing here is great but can be hard to navigate and follow the pike through the murky waters. Use some spin baits on the bass or top water baits. Had luck with spin baits and hooked a few bass here which we released. The pike were hitting on some of our jake baits, didn't hook anything to big though, saw some 43 inchers up in northern ontario, seems the further south the you get the smaller the pike get. All in all a great canal to fish, easy access and beautiful scenery.
Species Caught: Northern Pike
