Gabor Horvat reports: The migratory rainbow trout fishing is a bit slow in the tributaries that flow into Georgian Bay.   Heavy rain about 10 days ago and a big snow storm 3 days later is continuing to keep water temperatures cold.  The terrain up there is still snow-covered.  Cold night and morning temperatures in the 5 to -7 C is preventing the water from warming up quickly.  The flow in the tributaries is slowing down, but it is still a bit higher than normal.   I drifted smaller roe bags and went down to a #16 hook to compensate for the clear-water conditions.  I also used a 4 lb. test Fluorocarbon leader & a 6 lb. test main line.   Most of my drifts were only about 30’ in length, and than I had to reel-in and warm my hands up.  It very cold, but I managed to get two nice females.
