Edited by Stephen May for the Grand River Conservation Authority.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2010.


According to Fly Fisherman magazine, Fishing Ontario's Grand River Country is the best guide on the market to an area offering world-class fishing.

The Grand River is renowned for its brown trout, trophy bass, and pike, but the diversity teeming just beneath the water's surface is more than matched by the fascinating communities and beautiful scenery found along the river's banks.

The second edition of this popular guide has been completely revised and updated with new information, colour photographs, maps, species charts, and public river access points. If you're planning to go fishing in Ontario, this book is a good place to start.
