[singlepic id=2194 w=320 h=240 float=]Wayne Sheridan reports: The Saugeen River dropped dramatically over the past week and was very clear. Fish were moving to deep holes and action was very slow since there were no insect hatches during the weekend. Fishing was good at Saugeen Springs where Ron Yoworski caught this nice big brown trout. With rain and thunderstorms forecast for this weekend, this should increase river levels and make the fish more active. Fishing in Owen Sound is still good, best bets are Lymans and flutter spoons.
