  8. Lake trollers are finding the fish to be a bit more finicky as mature kings get ready to make their spawning runs. Shoreline trollers can pick fish up off the pier ...more heads. Others are anchoring in prime spots and casting with spoons or stickbaits. Salmon are also being reported off the pier, which has been leading to conflicts among boat and shoreline anglers. Show some common courtesy out there. If someone is fighting a fish, give them some room. Browns are also available in tight with some coming off the piers on spoons. Try targeting salmon and trout off the mouth of the river at the drop off on the Niagara Bar.
