Fishing Chuck's New Niagara River Outing...Impressive!

Postby Yellowstone7 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 7:20 pm

Hi Everyone:

A while ago I started to work on an outing based on the Niagara Falls and River and Chuck, who lives within a good double haul cast from this great river offered to help. He sent me some great pictures that he has taken himself and also gave me the fish species information. However, after thinking about this for a while I decided it should be Chuck who should build this outing as he has an intimate knowledge of the fishable waters and fish species within it. As it turned out it was a great decision on my part! :lol:

Chuck leaned to create outings in a relatively short time and is doing an excellent job. His ideas are novel and brought some freshness to our traditional outing building. Everyone enjoyed his Adams River Challenge where he used both the male and female spawning Salmons in the same outing and this was a good idea and a first. We exchanged emails and discussed the new Niagara outing and Chuck requested that I build some new fish so the outing will be as exciting and as authentic as possible. I went ahead and build the King Salmon, the Sea Run Brown and Coho and even created a new Jumping Walleye for him. These fish looked and fought very nicely in the rushing rapids and calmer pools of the Niagara river.

No, this will not be your tradition tranquil classic trout stream. The water is powerful and fast and there are some true monsters within some of the scenes. Your choice of tackle will determine your success and you will need to use pretty hefty tackle to fight and catch some of the jumping monsters. You will need to use your own best judgement and fishing experience and decided to use what and where. To keep the outing as authentic as possible Chuck even created some of the minnows found in these water. We have gone through 3 beta tests and made sure that everything looked and worked properly. I would say this is about as authentic, and as good as we can make it for our RWFF game.

Please download this Niagara outing and give it a good going over and post your catches and pictures on this Forum. After working on this for so hard and so long I think Chuck deserves a pat or two on his back for his fine effort. :lol:

Without further ado here are some pictures of the fish and scenes from this outing:

Hope you will all enjoy this nice one!

Hi Badger and Everyone:

Welcome back after a long absence! I took a last look on the Forum before going to bed and found your post re Green Drake. Looks like you either don't have the Green Drake in your food folder or the file is corrupt. No worries however as you can download a fresh file via this link:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/734 ... nDrake.zip

Just unzip it and put the file into your "food" folder and you will be good to go. Hope others are not having this same problem. :P

Happy Fishing!

Regards,

Stanley

PS. Look into your "food" folder and see if there is an unopened "food" folder within it. If so just expand it and copy all the items into your main "food" folder and delete the resulting empty folder.

Hi guys,

First up, just a little update as far as the move goes. Everything is in, I am unpacking bit taking a bit of a break for now. My two cats, Kai and Gypsy, are exploring their new territory, and although they have known each other for 5 years, Kai is hissing and growling at Gypsy to restablish her dominance LOL. Both are females.
I hope you guys are enjoying the Niagara River outing. It's actually kind of funny, but I have actually moved even closer to the Niagara in my current place. The Upper is literally my neighbor LOL! See for yourselves! This is a pic from my front porch:

Image

See that waterway? Great fishing is only a few steps away! But, back to the outing. I see you are having trouble with the Green Drake. I guess I just assumed everyone had it. That should fix your issue Badger, is to just DL and install the Green Drake. You should be good to go then. Any more problems, I will have Internet access through my computer again on Tuesday (currently writing this from my phone).
One more thing....to Stanley. I see you posted the Walleye Dark pic. Remember, that was Beta. Did someone forget to DL this version here? LOL! I know you forgot, because you would have mentioned "Site 15". ;-) I know wha you are thinking: "That darn Chuck has lost his marbles! In all testing there were 14 sites!" Ah-haaa...told you there was something different about this release outing bud. Hmmmmmm.... ;-)

Hi Chuck:

No, I didn't forget. That Dark Walleye was caught from your beta outing before I sent you the new fish. :P I may be old but not yet senile. LOL Here is an interesting picture for you and everyone. Did you know you might have captured a UFO in one of your pictures? Have a look.

Another fine fish from you outing:

Hi Barry:

I just sent you the Green Drake via your Gmail. Please check and let me know if it works for you. For some reason my Dropbox link is not working. Hope they can fix it soon!

Greetings all!

Am currently at work, still no Internet access until tomorrow besides my phone here. I have been watching what has been going on and if it will help, I'll upload a new DL for the Niagara River tomorrow which will include the Green Drake in the food files. I assumed everyone had that fly, since it is an older one.

Speaking of the Niagara River, yesterday I decided to go take a walk by my new neighbor and snapped some pics for you guys:

Also, really wished I'd of had a fishing pole with me! Here in the weeds, saw big groups of smallmouth and a few Northern Pike cruising around. Tried to get the pike in these pics, but he kept fading into the deeper water:

Will be back around real soon! Any other problems with the outing, please let me know!!

Hello all,

Well, I'm back online! Yay for me! LOL! Everything went smoothly, all is moved in and unpacked, I am slowly getting back into a normal routine. ALthough, gota say I am exhausted. Cannot wait for this weekend to come to just finally sit back and RELAX with nothing to do. I hope you guys have been enjoying the Niagara River outing. I apologize about the Green Drake though. If you guys want, I will upload a new version and include the Green Drake in the DL. Stupid me. Thats what I get for assuming.
Anyway, I took some time tonight to finally fish my own outing here, and did very, very well. I only wish I could have a day like this on the Niagara for real! The outing was challenging, and it was tough to latch onto the fish. I lost two due to spitting the hook, but thats ok. Another big thank you to Stanley for the fish creation and Beta work. I caught me some beasts!!
