[...] Anyway, I liked this recent post from the site about the fish ladder in downtown Grand Rapids. I remember going down there to watch the fish when I was young, so it brings back some good memories. Also, it never ceases to amaze me how these fishermen are always…ALWAYS, out there fishing. Both in and out of the river. Day and night. Warm and cold. Always. I was in Grand Rapids with a Chicago friend a month or so ago and he commented on the guys fishing from the bridges on that cold and rainy day. [...]
I was at the fish ladder last Sunday. There are some fish making their way up river now. For the kids, bring old or stale bread that they can throw into the ladder. They’ll be amazed at all the carp that appear to eat the bread.
