Wayne Sheridan reports: River levels are a bit high and clear. We went fishing in Walkerton on Sunday for a bit but the action was slow. We didn’t see any small minnows or chubs in the river. Around this time of year they bury themselves in the gravel until the spring. We did notice that the larger fish are sitting in deep pools. Our website was down for a few days, but our sever has fixed it. Our friend Randy just sent this picture of a nice bass he caught a little while ago. He caught it on Chesley Lake using a 4inch pumpkin seed tube jig.

Flyfishing: crayfish, bloodworms, worms and minnows for larger trout. Use roe for salmon and steelhead, single eggs seem to get the best results.
Great Lakes Fishing: Best lures are purple/black Lyman’s with silver specks and Lucky Strike spoons. Also, Rudy Hachey won the Owen Sound Salmon Spectacular using his trusted white ladder-back Lyman lure with a 21.16-lb (9.53 kilogram) Chinook salmon. Nice fish!
