trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgPERCH ARE BITING!!!  Perch fishing just started here out of St. Joseph and the boats are catching them anywhere from 30' on out to 40' of water depending on the location.  30-35 feet is productive 7-miles south in front of the Chalet's.  40 feet of water just north of the pier off of Jean Klock park has been good as well.   Fishing remains good for the Coho, Steelhead, Lake Trout and Salmon in depths of water ranging from 110 feet on out.  Seems the best depths of water ranging from  150-160 feet and also a bit deeper from 200-220 and down around 60 feet is where the thermocline starts.   Hot baits have been the #2 size flashers (orange) with a coho fly for the Coho, also spoon colors that are producing have been Blue Dolphins, Mixed blue Veggie, Carmel Dolphin and Green Dolphin UV patterns as well as moonshine glow spoons blue flounder.  Copper combos have been the hottest with 250, 300 and 350 foot copper set ups being most productive and a 7-color leadcore combo taking fish also out in the deeper depths.  Reports of the Skamania Steelhead have been decent but as of today no big run has happened.   Pier fishermen are picking up a few each day off the piers using frozen shrimp or casting cleos and KO wobblers. Walleye on the St Joseph River has been good but the recent high water levels have made it more difficult to target them.   Best success has been using night crawlers for bait.    No Reports as of lately of fishing at the Berrien Springs Dam.
