|The Boardman River meets Lake Michigan's West Grand Traverse Bay in downtown Traverse City, Michigan|
The Boardman River is currently in a state of change as dams are being removed & the river is being restored to a more natural flow. Above Beitner Park, 36 river miles of the Boardman & its tributaries are designated as Blue Ribbon trout habitat. Below Beitner there are still dams in place.
