Wayne Sheridan reports: River and lake levels continue to drop due to lack of rain in southern Ontario. We hope to get a good rain Thursday and Friday this week. Trout are now primarily feeding at dawn to dust and holding in deep pools during the day. Bass are down deep and look for them in cooler sections of the lake. Here is a picture of Ron with a pike that he caught at the Ayton dam.
