Canoeing the Grand


In 1994 the Grand River and its major tributaries achieved the coveted status of Canadian Heritage River. Due in large part to the successful efforts of many partners, the Grand is also considered a world class fishery. Along the Grand you'll find plenty trout, carp, pike and bass. Laurel Creek in Waterloo offers some excellent carp fishing.
