Grand River

The Grand river begins south of the capital city of Lansing, MI and flows first north, then west through the agricultural towns of Portland, Ionia and Lowell before coming to Grand Rapids and ultimately entering lake Michigan through the port town of Grand Haven.  Our largest river in Michigan, it spans over 250 miles in all.  The Grand river is home to various warmwater species, including bass, pike, walleye, various panfish and more, but also gets a migratory run of fall salmon and spring steelhead that search out cold tributaries to the Grand river spawn in.   Nearly any fly fishing technique can be affectively applied when fishing the Grand river due to the diverse species of fish that call it home and general makeup of such a big river.
