Wayne Sheridan reports. The heavy rains this past weekend, is causing the river levels to rise again. The river levels this Fall have remained the highest we have seen in over 20 years. Some rivers are un-fishable right now. The rain has drawn the rainbow and steelhead into the rivers on the Grey-Bruce. It will be a great time to check out the fish. Unfortunately the temperatures are quickly dropping, so watch for snow squalls coming off the Great Lakes.
