Rediscover Your Region: The Sublime Chaos of Autumn

Brookdog Fishing Company is back with another sensational episode of fishing in WNY. This time, Nathan Carr and Ryan Shea take us to the Niagara River, which is one of the singular most important spawning grounds for Chinook/King salmon. The scenic video is spectacular, with its changing foliage and dramatic natural (and man made) backdrops. The aerial shots of the river are also captivating. 

“This episode reveals the lower Niagara River in all its autumn glory,” says Nate. “Here we chase Chinook/King salmon as they make their annual spawning run from Lake Ontario. Deep canyons, raging rapids, beautiful fall foliage and huge salmon…. this episode has it all!  After a great day on the water, we head to Woodcock Brothers Brewery in Wilson, NY to sample their fine selection of craft beers and enjoy the many great dishes, all cooked in a wood fired oven.”

I hope that Visit Buffalo Niagara (VBN) has these guys on their radar. The two manage to capture this area in ways that we seldom see. They would be good poster boys for the great outdoors, as it relates to living in WNY. I’m not even an avid fisherman and these videos make me want to get out onto the water. They depict the wonderful natural aquatic assets that surround us. I also love the way that they wind down each episode with a trip to the nearest watering hole – in this case Woodcock Brothers Brewery. Great stuff once again.

See the first episode, featuring fishing in Lake Erie.
