Due to flood events in both 2018 and 2019 The Grand River and its tributaries have undergone many changes. Targeted habitat, such as brush pile and rock areas have moved and been altered during the flood events. Blue catfish, channel catfish, and flathead catfish can be found throughout the river with some fish reaching trophy size. Flooding usually brings good catfish spawns and growth.
Many shallow areas along the river can be difficult to boat through during low water conditions. Underwater snags have also moved during the flood events. Boat cautiously and be sure to monitor river stages before fishing. A list of accesses can be found on the MDC website
