Wayne Sheridan reports: Hailey was fishing the French River in Ontario and caught this real nice pike. Now that is great fishing. River and lake levels have stabilized during the past 2-3 weeks and fish will now be starting to hold in their normal locations. The cold wet Spring was definitely a challenge for many fishermen. Temperatures are now on the rise in southern Ontario and this will create many more fishing opportunities this summer. Always respect the water you are fishing in.
