Wayne Sheridan reports: With the recent rains, river levels are still higher than the normal low summer levels. This actually benefits the production of trout and other fish, as does the cooler summer. We went fishing and caught this nice rainbow trout. Bottom bouncing a worm is still working on catching these fish. My niece Mallory went fishing near Kingston a couple of weeks ago and caught 2 nice lake trout.
