Fishing opportunities within Ontario's Grand River

Larry Mellors, Owner of Friends on the Fly, is a fly fishing guide and instructor, as well as a conservationist and sought after presenter, will highlight many of the angling opportunities the Grand River has and the beauty of the river corridor itself.

The Grand River is the largest river situated entirely within southern Ontario. From its source near Dundalk, Ontario, the river flows 300km southerly through Brant County, the City of Brantford and Six Nations eventually entering the north shore of Lake Erie. The Grand River watershed encompasses 6,800 square kilometres. There is approximately 85km of river flowing through the County of Brant, City of Brantford and Six Nations.

Eighty-two species of fish, which represents more than fifty percent of all of the fish species found in Canada, inhabit the Grand River. The most sought after fish species in this area are walleye, smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, brown trout, crappie, mooneye, pike, carp, and redhorse sucker. In some of the cold water tributaries anglers will be seeking brook trout as well.

The Grand River supports a world-class fishery. Anglers from all over the world, especially North America, frequently visit to enjoy the angling opportunities.
