Angelo and Pete give their custom Princecraft “FNC1” a new facelift and then meet up with the “Bigwigs” from Princecraft Boats to showcase their pride and joy. As curious and eager as the Princecraft team are to see the transformed fishing craft for themselves, they would love to do some fishing too! The perfect meeting place is Kenauk Nature in the Outaouais region of Quebec. With brutal weather conditions dampening the entire trip, the boys hope they can still make a good impression with their fishing machine… and catch some fish too!
This month’s Hotspot is a section of the Niagara River on the Canadian side. This is a typical Niagara River area where the fish will move in and out on given days. If the fish aren’t here, simply pick up and move down river. Searching is the key to finding fish. Try bouncing roe bags or minnows along the bottom on a 3-way swivel rig. Remember to vary the length of your leader and dropper.
This month’s hotspot(s) is a 2 for 1. The first is the Queenston Drift on the Canadian side of the Niagara River. This is a slow drift and a great resting area for trout. The second is the Artpark Drift directly across from Queenston on the US side. These are 2 of the top Steelhead drifts on the lower Niagara River.
May’s HotSpot is a section on the Bow River outside of Calgary, Alberta. Our hotspot is a deep section just below a rocky shallow area. Make sure you fish from this shallow run all the way past the mouth of the Highwood River. This is a very large area so do not dwell on the exact waypoint. According to the Bow River Hatch Chart, use an Adams, Crystal Blue-winged Olive (size 18) during the first two weeks of May and an Adams, Quad March Brown (size 14) for the remainder of the month.
