trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgFALL WEATHER IS HERE AND SO ARE THE FALL SALMON!!!  With the cooler water temps and the cooler nights, the salmon are starting to make their fall run and are filtering into the rivers.  Anglers are starting to target salmon off the piers and also out in front of the river mouth.  We are anticipating a good fall salmon and coho run this year as well as steelhead.   Boats are still doing good out in the depths of water ranging from 80 - 140 feet of water.  The best baits of choice have been trolling spoons ranging in color from Green & Orange to Blue and Chartreuse. Kings and Coho have also been caught on meat rigs consisting of a herring strip being trolled behind a spin doctor or flasher.  River fishing on the St Joe has slowed down a bit but there are still a few Walleye to be targeted but most anglers are catching Smallmouth Bass.   The walleye are being caught with night crawlers mostly but can also be targeted by trolling with rapala shad raps or hot n tots with the firetiger color pattern being the hottest.   The best locations have been here on the lower stretches from the Napier bridge on up past the 94 bridge.   There have been a few reports of Steelhead caught up near the Berrien Springs Dam.   We would like to thank all the participants who fished this years Church Tackle and Tackle Haven Trifecta Challenge. Congratulation to Team Miss Shelby Too for winning the overall championship and to captain J.R.
