Grand River Fishing
Fishing The Grand River
The Grand River is dominated by Smallmouth Bass, but "Grand Slam" days where catching preferred species such as Trout, Northern Pike, Walleye, Catfish and more are always possible. Major pools on the Grand River can hold all species of fish. During Spring and Fall we target Steelhead (Rainbow trout) and in Summer we target Smallmouth Bass, but every cast has potential for one of the Grand Rivers many species.
The Grand is 50-75 meters wide and is a "dendritic" river, meaning it is shaped like a tree, with the Grand River as the tree trunk and many branches or tributaries that join it along the way. Some of these tributaries are major rivers in their own right. These include the Conestogo River that joins the Grand above Waterloo and the Eramosa River that joins the Speed River near Guelph, which joins the Grand in Cambridge.
