I apologize for an incomplete post.

This is the sixth st dam(far left) in Grand Rapids, Mi. There is great fishing for steelhead, salmon, brown trout, walleye and occasional sturgeon. However a very dangerous place for folks who are don't know where the holes are, more than one has died here.

The spot marked "D" is a quarry hole where limestone was mined, i've heard that hole is in the area of 70 ft deep.

I had two friends who fell in, they hit the downstream side and said it was like a wall.

I know there are peeps here from MI so I thought u might find it useful.

Wow, that drop off at the top looks particularly nasty!

So, how's the fishing been there lately? We've been really low on water over here on the east side (Au Sable, Rifle, Au Gres) but we just got a bunch of rain and are due for snow afterwards...about time, I'm dying to get out my cross-country skiis and ice-fishing gear!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

The goldish Brown dots as I understand are rock structures placed by ACOE.

Dnr says good, of course, shh, me thinks mdnr hypes a little or more.

People spend way more time there than me, not a fan of concrete.

Occasionally I'll stop by, more of a test run for the day before hitting other spots.
