Details of the Mohawk Route.

Guided Grand River fishing trips for trout, smallmouth bass, pickerel, pike and mooneye on the Mohawk run from Brant Conservation to Cockshutt bridge.

This section does allow the use of live bait, and there are no restrictions on barbs.

There are some very long deep holes of still water... thus the presence of pickerel.

There are mooneye from here down... the Wilkes dam prevents them from moving upstream.

This section also has a pair of bald eagles nesting and Osprey... spotting them as they soar through the valley is an unexpected highlight. 

If weather is bad or if the river blows out we will contact you and tell you to pick another day or refund your deposit.

Map of Mohawk Route on the Grand River ...about 13 km


The Mohawk Route has everything from shallow crossings to long 2-3 meter deep pools. It also has a couple of sections with deep swifts. The river is about 50-75 meters wide.

There are shallow spots where the rafts need to be walked through.

If time is a limit, shorter trips can be accommodated.

This section runs through the city of Brantford... but inspite of that... still offers a serene wilderness setting.

There are few biting bugs on the river... making this an excellent evening fish for pickerel.

The river averages 1 meter in depth with 2 meter deep swimming spots... about 50 meters wide.

This is for spincasting or baitcasting style of fishing... using artificial lures.

Choice of two different styles of boats... we use a new-school version of a classic driftboat (NRS Freestone Driftboat) or choose a Jackson Coosa fishing kayak.

For one person $299.00 or for two $399.00. Include 4-5 hours of guided fishing, river shuttle service, Tripper lunch. Taxes not included.

So if group is bigger then two people we can use multi-boats.

This also is a spring fall steelhead section the first two weeks of May or mid September til December.

Once you have chosen a fishing route and time, we meet you at the starting point.

The platforms are spacious where you can sit or stand as the guide takes you down the river… the speed of the rafts are excellent for fishing the pools.

You can also choose to stop and shore fish interesting spots… remember it is your day.

Return Shuttle: We meet you at the starting point and shuttle you back to your vehicle at the end of the trip.


We keep it simple… everything is looked after by us… and you enjoy the day!
