Saugeen River Update.

Posted on May 7th, 2009

wayne_sheridan_graphicWayne Sheridan reports on fishing the Ontario Grey-Bruce tributaries. With the temperatures varying so much, all the thermometers feel like yo-yo’s. With snow flurries today and then warm weather last  weekend (20C), this has caused nature to be a little confused (as we are). The cold temperatures had slowed down the spring rainbow run and it was a good opening weekend & week. Remember to check the regulations for areas that are open.  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.


Saugeen conditions: high, tea colored water, 5C, and visibility 2 foot.
