Steelhead and Salmon River Conditions We will provide information on individual systems when we have intel.
Middle Grand- Fish are beginning to show up below Caledonia and with last week’s rain, they should be moving throughout the system.
Nottawasaga- A few steelhead have been taken but it’s mainly chinooks at this point.
Saugeen- Ok numbers showing up at Southhampton, but mainly salmon at this point.
Notes: The rain over the past few days in our regions have not really affected G.Bay and Lake Ontario. This past weeks full moon and low temps should have fish moving fairly well on the bigger systems though.
