Saugeen River, ON Update.

Posted on November 20th, 2009

wayne_sheridan_graphicWayne Sheridan reports: Dense fog in the early mornings will be a challenge for most drivers for the next few days in the Great Lakes region. This is combined with intermittent showers through the area. This will help river and lake levels, which have dropped the past 2 weeks. Fishing at most of the river mouths has been a challenge the past 2 weeks due to low clear water conditions. Rainbows and steelhead have been very easily to spook. 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..
