Grand River - "Walk and Wade"

Learn to Fish lessons just 1 hour from Toronto on the Grand River.

Thanks to Grand River Rafting, we are granted access to their waterfront farm and camping area less than 1km from the 403.

Learn to fish the shallow and flowing Grand River near Brantford Ontario. These lessons require guests to walk into the water to place their baits in the “strike zone”.

River fishing can be challenging, but also rewarding. Your guides will teach you how to “read” the river.

  • choosing the correct reel and rod
  • how to tie proper knots
