Wayne Reports: We were up on the Saugeen River this past weekend and river levels have finally dropped down to normal spring levels. There was a lot of damage from the flood, as large trees came down the river and now are obstructions in the river. Canoeist should use caution when coming down the rivers.
Its spring, the good news is that the frogs are mating in the swamps, a nice sound. The bad news is that the mosquitoes are already out, I killed 2 on Saturday evening.
