Fishing the Grand Rapids Area

The Grand Rapids area offers some of the best fishing and in the state of Michigan, particularly on the Grand River. As a matter of fact, Field & Steam called the Grand River one of the best steelhead and smallmouth rivers in the state.

Many area rivers and lakes offer the angler the opportunity to catch everything from salmon to steelhead, northern pike to smallmouth bass and everything in between.

During the winter and as ice allows, gills, crappie and perch are the name of the game on area lakes. Ice fishing allows the angler to connect to these panfish and for some bringing back memories of when they were a kid.

So come and fish the Grand River in and near the Grand Rapids area, get outdoors and book your trip with Werkman Outfitters
