West Grand Lake Professional Review and Guide
"West Grand Lake is big and deep, covering 14,340 acres, with depths up to 128 feet. It is connected to Junior Lake (Site 60) by a water thoroughfare—a waterway, without flowage, that connects two bodies of water. The famous Grand Laker canoe, a specialized fishing craft made to accept an outboard motor on its square stern, was designed for use on this lake; modern versions as well as venerable specimens can be seen here.
There is little opportunity to fish from shore. Boats should be at least 14 feet long, with lengths of 16 feet or more preferred for safety. West Grand Lake can become a raging sea during windstorms. Special regulations include a slot limit on bass and a no-kill, artificials-only season from October 1 through October 15. Lodging is available in Grand Lake Stream. Marks, Hardwood, and Kole Kill islands offer primitive campsites. Key Species: landlocked salmon, lake trout, smallmouth bass, white perch, whitefish, pickerel."
