FISHING REPORTS out of ST JOSEPH & BENTON HARBOR:
NOVEMBER IS STEELHEAD TIME!!!!!! The St Joseph River is the place to be this time of year and Michigan Steelhead are the top target for anglers. This year water levels are good and river conditions seem to be favorable for fall fishing here in Southwest Michigan. Anglers are reporting good catches of Steelhead on the river and mostly by boat either trolling hot 'n' tots or flatfish or drifting back some spawn. Top colors of choice for the lures are various combinations of Gold, Orange and Black. Also Whitefish and Steelhead are being caught off the Pier in St Joe and reports have been favorable. Fishing for the Whitefish has been consistent for most of the Fall and anglers are catching them on Single Salmon Eggs for the most part. Steelhead fishing has been good using either Spawn or Casting spoons such as KO Wobblers or Cleos, best color combinations are Orange or Red combined with a silver or gold. Another good place to target Steelhead, Walleye or any other game fish is at the Berrien Springs Dam. Drifting Spawn, Corky's or Wobble Glo's are always productive as well as casting spinners. It's looking like perch fishing is done for the year out in the Lake as well as the Salmon fishing. However if we do have nice weather and low waves the Salmon can be caught in the depths ranging from 120-250 feet of water. Smallmouth fishing on the St Joseph River has been good and anglers are targeting them here on the lower stretches near the river mouth. 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.
