The river meets Muskegon Lake and from there connects to Lake Michigan providing a natural migration of Salmon, Steelhead, Trout, and Bass to Muskegon River.
The Grand River is the largest river in the state covering a span of 262 miles across Pure Michigan passing through Grand Rapids, Lansing, Grand Haven, Jackson, and Eaton Rapids. The Grand River is so large it was split into 3 governing sections: the lower, the middle, and the upper. The lower Grand River, pictured by MGROW, runs through Grand Rapids which was named the Nation’s 6th best fishing city by Field & Stream Magazine. The lower Grand River is home to many Steelhead, Salmon, Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Coho, Skamania, Catfish, Bass and Walleye.
