LEWISTON—The popular fishing pier at the base of the New York Power Authority's Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant—the main generating facility at the Niagara Power Project—will reopen for the start of the trout season on April 1, barring extreme winter weather. The pier was closed as usual for the winter.

The pier, open daily from dawn to dusk, is admission-free. Parking is available at the top of the hill next to the roadway that provides access to the pier.

Restrooms will be open; however, the fish cleaning station will remain closed until the possibility of freezing temperatures has passed.
