Niagara River Guide Service

Whether you want to experience fishing Lake Erie for the first time, or you’re a seasoned pro of these waters, Niagara River Guide Service has the trip for you! Captain John Delorenzo will show you just how hot the action can get, on this Northern lake.

Capt. John invites you to join him for a freshwater adventure on board his 21’ Lund. She can hold 4 angler and the captain, fishing at the same time without crossing rods. The engine is a 150 HP Evinrude outboard that allows the boat to cruise at a maximum speed of 40 knots.

Despite her impressive speed, you won’t even need to test it – the action starts 10-15 minutes after you leave the port. You’ll go after Smallmouth Bass and Walleye on Lake Erie with Capt. John. These fighters will give your fishing muscles a workout and your skills a test. The onboard wireless trolling motor helps you sneak up on them and keep you steady for that perfect cast.

Kids of all ages are more than welcome with Niagara River Guide Service, the captain will provide you with all sizes of life jackets. Capt. John and the other guides have been fishing the area for 35 years and know all the best fish holes around.

All you need before you cast off on an exciting fishing excursion is a valid fishing license which you can get in almost any local tackle shop. The captain will gladly help you with buying one – just ask him for details.

Remember to pack sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera – you don’t want to miss out on documenting your trophy catch!

Treat your family or friends to an outdoors experience you’ll fondly remember for years to come. Book a trip with Niagara River Guide Service today and start making memories!

I've been fishing since my teens and I have been guiding for thirty-four years. I have caught thousands of trophy fish so my greatest satisfaction comes from helping others to catch that trophy fish that they couldn't on their own.
