"Simply put, Chris Cinelli is the most knowledgeable fishing guide on the Niagara River. When fishing gets tough, virtually all the local guides seek his advice."
Palm Coast, Florida
"Every spring and fall for the last five years I have been taking the 7 hour drive from New Jersey to Lewiston, New York to fish with Captain Chris Cinelli. Chris is the most personable and knowledgeable captain that I have ever fished with. I fish multiple charters every year in Florida for sailfish, tarpon, wahoo, tuna and snook and in New Jersey for striped bass, fluke and blackfish: but my favorite fishing trips are still my trips with Captain Chris in the Niagara River or Lake Erie or Lake Ontario.
Chris is an outstanding captain and fisherman He has an easy way about him that puts you at ease while you are fishing and enhances the joy of the trip. If there are steelhead, salmon, smallmouth, muskie, northern pike, brown trout or walleye to be found Chris will find them."

I fished with Chris on the Niagara River, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario for the past 12 years. He has the knowledge, disposition, and drive that makes him the best guide with whom I've ever fished. He uses the best equipment which includes a 21 foot Lund that is both safe and comfortable. Chris will do just about anything to make sure your fishing trip is the most memorable. No one knows the Niagra area waters and seasonal fishing patterns like Chris. You wouldn't believe how fast a seven hour day can go! He uses a variety of tactics to catch fish such as lures, egg sacs, minnows, tubes, or whatever it takes. I have had the pleasure of catching my biggest steelhead trout, muskie, wallleye, brown trout, lake trout, pike, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and salmon with Chris as my guide. Having fished with many guides for many years, Chris ranks number one in my book.
