LEWISTON – The fishing piers at the base of the New York Power Authority’s Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant on the Niagara River shore and the pier near the Upper Mountain Fire Company at the Lewiston Reservoir will close for the winter season Thursday.

Power Authority officials said both piers will reopen when ice conditions clear next spring.

The fish cleaning station at the Niagara Power Plant will not reopen, however, until the possibility of freezing temperatures has passed.
