Hey Troopers,
Been a while for me doing any river fishing. Buddy moved up near mouth of Saugeen and has convinced me to get out the river rod.
Question is, how should I rig it as far as line and leader?
He says we will using single egg method.

Wondering if i would use a different line setup/method for some more local rivers too.

Any advice is always appreciated

Best advise...Ask your buddy exactly the rig he uses ..

Other than that , If you don't have or want to spend the $ on a center pin rig a 9' spin rig catches a lot of fish..

8lb main line with 4/6lb leader , bottom bounce with just enough shot to tic bottom , or, use a float with enough shot placed so the float is 3/4 submerged , leaving about 2' from last shot to hook ..

Bait, single eggs,very small roe bags ,beads or maybe the pink plastic worm..

It's a long learning curve but can pay big silver rewards ..

You've got some solid advice already. If you've never been to the mouth of the Geen, it's a little bigger water than most places around here. A little bigger float and a bit more shot would be a good starting point. If you're using spinning tackle, you might try casting a kwikfish or a spinner.

Thanks guys

I used to drop a line at the mouth...not gonna say 30 years ago...even if it was that long ago.
I think we are gonna wander more up river...
Off to grab some waders today for just that reason.

Thanks again
Will hopefully post something.
