Fishing  Report

May 12th 2021

Believe it or not, there are still a few steelhead lingering around and even spawning in smaller tribs. Talk about an extendo run! But, the smallie and muskie/pike bite is on fire! Ensuing mayfly hatches, including the incredible sulphur hatch on the St Joe that turns smallmouth into blithering fools during evening spinner falls (...just like trout, only they fight harder :) - portend really good things to come.

 

And of course, it's all the rage these days to pimp the cicada hatch, which is imminent...any second now...any second now. My take, stock up on orange/black and black poppers, and chill.
 

 

CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY!
 

DOWAGIAC RIVER: This stream is essentially shut down FYI. Please, stop calling, texting and messaging me about it. I am not the oracle of the project and frankly, nobody truly knows what will happen from day to day. And, if you're upset about it and need somebody to listen - call a shrink.

Where

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.

WHEN

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.
