 State of the Grand River fishery to be topic of public meetings in Dunnville, Six Nations 

The results of a 10-year plan to improve the Grand River watershed fishery will be discussed at two public meetings in the lower Grand area. 

Grand River Conservation Authority

Thursday, March 5 at the Dunnville District Hunters and Anglers Club House, 237 McLauglin Side Rd., Dunnville (Originally scheduled for Feb. 16 but postponed due to flooding.) Wednesday, March 18 at the Six Nations Tourism Center, 2498 Chiefswood Rd., Ohsweken. 

The meetings, which will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. will outline the work that has been done to implement the Grand River Fisheries Management Plan and give those attending an opportunity to talk about future directions for the fishery.

Over the past 10 years the Grand River system has enjoyed a rebirth as a great place for anglers. Much of the improvement has come about as a result of the implementation of the recommendations of the plan.  

It was released in 1998 by the GRCA and the Ministry of Natural Resources after extensive consultation with anglers, fishing groups and residents of the Grand River watershed.

 The meeting will include these presentations:

Overview of the Grand River Fisheries

Management Plan MNR projects in the Lower Grand

Volunteer projects in the Lower Grand

Water quality conditions Management of the GRCA reservoir system

In addition to the presentations, there will be a variety of displays on fishery and environmental issues. 

More information on the plan and the Grand River fishery is available in the “Fisheries” section of the GRCA website at www.grandriver.ca
