Wayne Sheridan reports: It seems that winter and spring are having daily fights to see which one will win these past few weeks. One day spring wins and the next it is snowing. Everything is about 2-3 weeks behind normal right now. Some friends report that the rainbow fishing is starting to pick up at most river mouths, especially Owen Sound this past week. Warmer weather and rain will increase the runs. Open season for trout will open later this month in most rivers and lakes. Best bet right now is river mouths flowing into the Great Lakes.
