[nggallery id=754]Wayne Sheridan reports: River levels are still very low but we finally got some rain on the Saugeen River on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Best time for trout fishing will be right at sunset and sunrise. Our friend Hailey caught her first fish while fishing on the Grand River near Kitchener. She had lots of fun fishing and caught and released this nice bass. Congrats Hailey.
