Wayne Sheridan reports. It was a cold wet weekend camping on the Grey-Bruce last weekend and fishing was a challenge. Two weeks ago there was a major large white mayfly hatch and the fish filled their stomachs full.

There were a few rainbows swimming around, looking for a snack. Most of these are staying in deep pools, where the water is warmer. We saw some white mayflies still laying their eggs in the river and the trout were feeding on these.
