Wayne Sheridan reports: Hot, humid, smoggy weather has settled over southern Ontario. We wonâ€™t see a break in the heat until Friday where normal summer temperatures will return. Warmer weather has meant that the fish are holding in deep pools where it is cooler and some have switched to night/early morning feeding. The best bet is to hit the water before the sun rises. Once the sun hits the water the fish will shut down and go into hiding.
