FISHING REPORTS out of ST JOSEPH & BENTON HARBOR:
SALMON ARE RUNNING!!!!!! The wind has been blowing and the Salmon have been coming up the St Joseph and Paw Paw rivers. Take advantage of the nice weather and the Salmon Run before it is over. There have been Salmon and Steelhead and a few Coho already caught in the Paw Paw river where it connects into the St Joseph. Anglers are also targeting salmon out in the lake in the depths ranging from 40 to 100 feet of water. As this report is being updated the boats are trolling in front of the piers and on out to 60 feet of water. Fish can still be caught on out to 100 feet as well. Perch fishing was very good a week ago before we had the four days of wind and waves. Hopefully the perch will still be biting through the month of October so don't give up on them quite yet. Boats were catching nice size perch and also good numbers of them in and around 40 feet of water. As of now we haven't had any reports of salmon or steelhead off the piers but as the weather cools down fishing will only be getting better. Fishing out in Lake Michigan remains good and the water temp is hovering around 68 degrees. There have been some big King Salmon weighed in here at our store and tipping the scale at the 20# range. We have also weighed 20# 8z lake Trout here at the store this past week. Perch have been caught in the depths ranging from 35-42 Feet of water mainly north of the piers. Salmon fishing has been good as well with most of the fish being caught in the deeper depths ranging from 80 - 130 feet of water. Smallmouth fishing on the St Joseph River has been good. Water depths on the river this year are good and it is reported that the lake is up a foot from last year and reaching its average level. Its time to gear up to fish the Salmon, Steelhead and Coho in the river and also at Berrien Springs Dam for the Fall run. Please make sure you have your NEW 2014 Fishing License!
