Grand River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The summer season is apon us, which means it's time to turn your focus toward carp and smallmouth. With the warm weather in the forcast, don't be afraid to try casting poppers or wiggle minnows near structure during low-light. Streamers, crawfish and hellgramites will still be your best bet for hooking into some good fish. When it comes to carp, make sure you are targeting fish that have their heads down and are actively feeding. Don't spend to much time casting to "cruising carp". Flies like crawfish patterns and large nymphs will do the trick, just make sure you are stealthy in this low-water!

Seven-day forecast 

With the rains last week the river is high right now and may take a week or so to drop as long as we don't see more rain.
