Wayne Sheridan reports: We went fishing on Saturday afternoon. We didn’t fish very long because the Saugeen River was low and the water was surprisingly crystal clear. On our drive up to the Grey-Bruce we noticed that some of the tree’s leaves were already starting to change colours, to a dark red. That means that Fall is quickly approaching. Enjoy the last taste of Summer this week.
Some friends are fishing this week in the Owen Sound Spectacular, good luck to all.
Wayne’s Fishing Tip of the Week: This week the water was crystal clear and low. I have a general rule that if you can see the bottom of the river, the fish can see you and will take off. Then I will fish deeper water.
