Wayne Sheridan reports: Heavy rains Saturday raised river levels throughout southern Ontario. On Sunday afternoon, we decided to try our luck before it got too sunny out and the river cleared and caught and released this nice small brown trout in the campground. When fishing, you have to take into consideration, weather conditions and what will happen in the next few hours. If we had waited until evening, we probably would not have caught that fish.
