Fishing Report - May 26th, 2020




Well, we went from early spring to summer in a matter of about two weeks: From spawning steelhead and muskie, to spawning post spawn muskie and bass, to a notable slug of summer-run Skamania-strain steelhead (as I predicted ten days ago...toot, toot).


Oh yes, and one wild winter-run steelhead I just noticed going upstream in the fish ladder. A gravid female no less!


We have PLENTY of water but things are normalizing. Lakes are fine. Muskie fishing is very good and smallmouth fishing will be on fire as the river gets squared away.

Big browns have been very active as well!

Temporary 'Rona Protocol (TRP) in effect - get in touch with me!

Anglin Outdoors specializes in warm and coldwater species throughout a region that straddles much of the Indiana/Michigan state line known as Michiana. While steelhead and smallmouth bass fishing on the St Joseph River system including the revered Dowagiac River are the focus of most outings, many other species are caught during a typical day including resident brown trout, largemouth bass and a variety of panfish, among others. Northern pike are often targeted or caught as a bonus species. Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan are blessed with some incredible muskie fisheries. While some 'skis are present in streams the bulk of fishing is done on small inland lakes.


The Michiana region is blessed with year-round fishing opportunities. Other than frigid arctic conditions that make fishing unbearable for most anglers, steelhead fishing is a possibility just about every month of the year. Obviously, numbers of fish and conditions vary from year to year but suffice it to say we have fantastic steelhead opportunities here - in particular spring and fall. Smallmouth bass fishery generally takes the stage from late May through early October - June, July and August being the primary focus. Resident trout fishing is also available to some degree nearly year-round but often comes as a bonus to steelhead fishing. September is a great month of pursue big, fresh king and coho salmon along with summer-run Skamania steelhead. Muskie and pike fishing can be excellent if not world class throughout much of the year as well.


All trips require a $150 deposit to lock date!
