Wayne Sheridan reports on fishing the Ontario Grey-Bruce tributaries.

LOST: the lazy crazy days of summer, 2009, if found, please send to southern Ontario. Cool weather has settled across southern Ontario again.  The only good thing, is that trout fishing has been very good. Normally trout fishing decreases in the rivers as the tempertures rise over 18C, but htis year the ruiver tempertures have remained cool and higher than normal levels.
