Great time for Steelies.
If you narrow it to a driftboat trip.... then I think the Salmon is your best bet. Once the snow starts falling .... the river takes on a different character.
Can't recommend a guide on the forum .....
but, research it .... there are 2 fly guides (w/ driftboats) that come to mind as excellent choices.
I would be VERY clear about telling the guide how you like to fish. Nymphing, swinging a streamer, chuck & duck .... all very different techniques.
Hope you have a great outing.

I went through at least a half dozen guides on the Salmon river before finding Dave Barber. He's done wonders for my steelheading skills and I'd recommend him wholeheartedly.

anyone familiar with fishing the niagara river. i hear it is great for steelhead but the sites i've found talk about trolling and other non fly fishing techniques.
