Saugeen River, ON Tributary Update.

Posted on November 29th, 2009

wayne_sheridan_graphicWayne Sheridan reports: Warmer than normal fall weather continues to hang around southern Ontario. Fog is still an early morning challenge for most drivers and commuters. Rain this past week has raised river levels and dirtied the water. This will improve fishing opportunities around river mouths. Best bet for the Grey-Bruce is Owen Sound. A warm fall has put everything behind by about two weeks. Lakes have started their fall turnover, so fish will be holding in warmer pockets of water, near baitfish. Be careful around river and lake shores, ice will form on the banks overnight once it cools down again, later next week. Best bait is minnow lures as most of the minnows have gone to their winter hibernation locations.
