FISHING REPORTS out of ST JOSEPH & BENTON HARBOR:
CONGRATS ORIGINATOR FISHING TEAM! FALL FISHING FOR KINGS AND COHO!!! The weather is changing and it's now time to target the salmon that will be coming in the rivers to spawn. Plus there are still plenty of fish to be caught both in the river and in and around the piers and also out into the lake. Perch fishing has been good these past two months and anglers are still catching them both North and South of the piers in depths of water from 35 - 50 feet. Fall is usually a great time to target the JUMBOS out on the lake. There are still Salmon and Steelhead being caught out on the Lake in depths of water ranging from 80 to 200 feet of water with 100 to 120 being the best depths. Lake Trout have been plentiful this year and the best baits for targeting them are either a flasher fly combo or a spin n glo and flasher rig. Coho and King Salmon are mostly being caught on trolling spoons with a green/chartreuse combo being the best. Depths of water to target salmon are 120 - 200 and plenty more assortment of fish to be found out past 200 feet. Walleye season is still open but I would classify this summer as an off year on the St Joe River since past years have been much better. Not sure if the reason is the hight water levels. Best Baits of choice for the Walleye are Night Crawlers being drifted on the river bottom, Jigging minnows or trolling crank baits such as Rapala Shad Raps. No replorts lately from Berrien Springs Dam but things will be heating up any day. In the meantime, stop by our store and get your gear ready.
