What about the fish?

• Dec 12, 2017 at 5:00 PM

This week’s Blog of the Week is a video produced and narrated by Joshua Vissers, an incoming intern for the West Michigan Environmental Action Council.

Vissers focuses on the Grand Rapids Whitewater initiative pushing forward with plans to rebuild the Grand River rapids through downtown Grand Rapids. They want to add kayak and canoe routes, wading paths, and rowing lanes.

But, Vissers asks, how will that affect fishing along that 2.2-mile stretch? Some fishermen call the plan “the end of fishing in downtown Grand Rapids.”

However, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is less worried. They say it will alter fishing, but far from not ending it, for the rapids area.
