Fishing on Grand Lake
Twin Bridges Area Marina & Fishing

The Twin Bridges Area marina and fishing center features bait and tackle supplies, as well as snacks and drinks. They also have an enclosed fishing dock, perfect for a winter fishing day, or even those cool spring and fall mornings or evenings. Anglers can try their luck with large-and-smallmouth bass, white bass, crappie, channel and flathead catfish, bluegill, sunfish and paddlefish. A lighted boat ramp and dock provide access to the lake and rivers.

The park is also home to the Wildlife Department's Paddlefish Research & Processing Center, which collects important biological data about the fish, processes meat for anglers, and salvages paddlefish eggs. The Research Center is open from February 15th to May 15th. Contact the Wildlife Department for more information about the center.
