We’ve partnered with Caledonia Bait & Tackle’s Mike & Michelle Pettigrew to bring you the top 5 reasons to fish the Grand!
1. There’s something for everyone!
The diversity of Caledonia’s fish population is truly remarkable. The river is full of everything from carp to crappie, bass to bowfin, walleye to mooneye, and all those in between!
2. There’s nothing between you and the water!
There are so many easy access points to the river! There are ample banks for those who prefer to stay dry, and easy wading spots for the more adventurous in the group. Above the dam, there are many docks available to launch a boat! There is also ample free parking both above and below the dam!
3. Spend some quality time…
It’s no secret that fishing is a family-friendly pastime, and that lots of youngsters are picking up the craft from older generations! Fishing the Grand is a great way to spend quality time together!
For the non-fishing members of the family, there are parks, playgrounds and amenities to enjoy all within walking distance of the river!
4. Stay all day!
If you’ve had your fill of fishing don’t fret! Our community boasts many great activities in and around the river. The water is great for canoeing and kayaking, there are parks, playgrounds and trails close by for the outdoorsy travellers, as well as shops and restaurants for those who’d like to head indoors!
