Wayne Sheridan reports: River conditions changed dramatically the past week due to the heavy rains. They rose about 3-4 ft from all the rains in the Grey-Bruce. Levels increased to their normal levels finally this past weekend, but the rivers were very cloudy and muddy. They started to clear on Saturday and Sunday and fishing improved. The fish moved to new areas from the previous weeks and were feeding aggressively at times. We caught, photographed and released this nice brown trout on the Saugeen River.
