Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Thank you, Jay!

In a group text this morning, John Pensyl let slip that he was enjoying chili from his Thermos at home after his partner had to cancel. I text back, "chili on board is risky business this time of year!"

How do I put this delicately... Uh... when nature calls in the spring and summer, options abound on the water. In the fall the list of beaconing bathrooms is much shorter.

I would bet, like me and others I know, on days when you're fishing long hours you might spend a little more time in the bathroom before heading to the water. My friends and I would intentionally look for rental cabins with multiple bathrooms for this (and other reasons.)

I try to know as many spots up and down the river in case I have to use all 175 horses to prevent a, uh... disaster.

Here's a list of relief stations for emergency situations:

  • The foot of Sheridan has a porto-potty this time of year, but not always. I wonder if it blew down to Kenmore Avenue after this last storm?
  • The foot of Ontario doesn't have a porto-potty (as far as I know), but it does have reasonably quick access to two bathrooms at Tim Horton's and McDonald's. Despite the penguin walk from the launch, at least you can re-arm your boat with coffee, donuts or burgers.
  • Anchor Marine has saved me a few times.
  • If you get caught down river, you can dock at Swiston's and use their facilities. Pay them back by ordering a drink or perhaps a beef on weck or wings to go. You can't go wrong with either.
  • In the lower there use to be porto-potty in Fort Niagara, and there are a few options near the Youngstown' and Lewiston' launches, but I haven't been down there in awhile.
  • The same goes for the harbor. Is the restaurant or offices at the small boat harbor (or whatever it's called now) still open this time of year? Life savers, both of them.

I'm sure there are other oasis out there. If you know of any, don't be shy to share.

Better safe than sorry (or stinky).
