Wayne Sheridan reports on fishing the Ontario Grey-Bruce tributaries. Hot weather last week, quickly warmed the rivers and lakes in Grey-Bruce. This was followed by a low pressure system that was stuck over southern Ontario has quickly raised river and lake levels. Fishing has been very good.  Last weekend we caught and released a 10 inch brook trout and caught a nice 10 inch rainbow at Saugeen Cedars Family Campground. Trout are in shallower areas feeding now, best bets are where streams enter the river or lake.
