Wayne Sheridan reports: Andy, Mario and their friends went fishing up to Goderich to fish for steelhead last Saturday. While the river was up from the rain from hurricane Sandy, it was very fishable. When Andy first got there, everyone was fishing in one pool. He went down and fished another pool and immediately started catching fish. Within a few minutes, everyone moved down to his pool. He then went back to the first pool and started catching them there…lol.
Dave went up north with Lenny a little while go and caught this beautiful giant pike. They had a great time together. Many of the rivers in southern Ontario now have started to drop down and clear up after hurricane Sandy.
River Flow Rates: moderate/high. Visibility tea coloured, 5ft.
River Levels: Saugeen River (above Durham) down at 1.339M, Saugeen River (Walkerton) at 9.598M, Saugeen at Port Elgin down at 7.786M, Sauble River (Sauble Falls) down at 1.2M, Sydenham River (Owen Sound) down at 5.062M, Maitland River (above Wingham) down at 10.00M, French River at Woseley Bay at 187.605M, Bronte Creek near Zimmerman down 5.885M, Credit River at Streetsville down at 4.642M, Credit River at Orangeville up at 11.196M, Grand River (Doon), down at 4.414M (below Shand dam) down at 1.687M, Rideau River at Ottawa down at 2.7M, Ottawa River at Britannia up at 58.3M
Prime Fishing Times: Saturday November 10th, 2012: 7:58 am to 9:54 am (moon overhead) and 8:23 pm to 10:19 pm (moon underneath).
Flyfishing: Iso, various caddis, trico, white dun, red blood worm, crayfish and minnow. For steelhead: very small roe bag with only 3-4 eggs for steelhead in the river mouths.
Great Lakes Fishing: The steelhead are now at the river mouths and in the rivers. Best bet is Lyman lures, monkey puke and herring colours. Use larger lures to imitate the baitfish. Use Lucky Strike lures.
