    Yesterday sat and waited looking for a salmon below the dam at the brenke fish ladder. There was undersize smallmouth bass, lots of carp, and than two gar. I've never heard of gar that far up the grand any thoughts? There were two gar one was like 20 inches long and the other one was big pushing 35 to 40 inches.

    I haven't seen them up that far but its not surprising as they are fairly abundant in the Maple and the entire lower grand.

    Yeah knew they were in the lower section of the grand river and maple river but didn't know they went all the way to lansing. Curious to whether theres a good population of them that far upstream or whether there's only a few that far up.

    If you saw two there are probably several more.
