Last year we fished the lower niagara in our kayaks the first week of October and did well. We want to go back again this fall, but we're having a hard time choosing a date. We will fish the Coast Guard drift right at the mouth. I do have a couple questions as I'm still learning this river from 3 hours away.
1. Is now until October a good time to fish that stretch? Or does it get better into the late fall?
2. I know we won't have to deal with a blown out river generally, but what about wind? When we were there last year it was really calm. What wind in that stretch of the river would be miserable for a kayaker?
3. What size dropshot and tube weight do you recommend for that area?
