trifecta-2-img-302417.jpgPerch are Biting!!!  Perch fishing has been very good out of St Joseph and keep in mind this year the limit was downsized to 25 perch per person.  boats have been targeting the perch both north and south of the piers in depths of water ranging from 25-40 feet deep.   Shiner minnows have been the bait of choice on a perch rig with preferably a fly tied on the hook (Perch Pounder or Gotcha Perch Rigs).  Salmon fishing is still holding strong with both the Chinook and Coho being caught along with a good number of Steelhead being caught in depths ranging from 100 -150 feet of water being the most productive.  Best baits of choice for the salmon bite seem to be spoons (standard and magnum) as well as flasher and fly combos.  Colors have ranged from Red/Yellow spoons to Green and Blues with no particular color doing better.   Steelhead fishing is heating up both in the lake and on the piers with the summer Skamania run hitting its peak.  Skamania in the river are being caught on Oslo Spinners and the pier fishermen are using frozen shrimp or casting spoons and lures.  Walleye fishing in the river has been good considering the high water and boats are mainly targeting them on a drift using night crawlers.   Tackle Haven is open 7-days a week and it is now time for your 2019 Fishing License so stop in and renew before your next adventure out on the water.
