Wayne Sheridan reports on fishing the Ontario Grey-Bruce tributaries: With the temperatures varying so much, all the thermometers feel like yo-yoâ€™s. With snow flurries today and then warm weather for the weekend (20C), this has caused nature to be a little confused (as we are). The cold temperatures have slowed down the spring rainbow run and it should be good opening weekend. Remember to check the regulations for areas that are open to trout this weekend. Some river sections open at a later date. Best lures: spawn-sacks, single egg presentations, Cleo, Kwikfish, Hot Shots & spinners and spoons.
River Flow Rates: moderate/high
Saugeen River (Durham) rising again at 1.47M, Saugeen River (Walkerton) rising at 10.1M, Saugeen River (Port Elgin) rising at 8.5M, Sauble River (Sauble Falls) steady at 1.32M, Sydenham River (Owen Sound) steady at 5.18M, Maitland River (below Wingham) rising at 1.35M, Credit River at Streetsville down at 4.6M, Credit River at Orangeville steady at 11.3M, Grand River (Doon), down at 4.1M (below Shand dam) 1.58M.
