Saugeen River, ON and area fishing update.

Posted on August 19th, 2014

20140817_161328Wayne 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.

River Flow Rates: Moderate, tan coloured, visibility 4 ft.

River Levels: Saugeen River (above Durham) at 1.365M, Saugeen River (Walkerton) at 9.713M, Saugeen at Port Elgin at 7.763M, Sauble River (Sauble Falls) 0.764M, Sydenham River (Owen Sound) at 4.943M, Maitland River (above Wingham) at 9.96M, French River at Woseley Bay at 186.787M, Bronte Creek near Zimmerman 5.85M, Credit River at Streetsville at 4.432M, Credit River at Orangeville not available, Grand River (Doon) at 4.093M (below Shand dam) at 1.673M, Rideau River at Ottawa 3.137M, Ottawa River at Britannia at 57.982M
