Fishing  Report

Sept  17th  2021

The smallmouth are really on the feed right now! The popper bite has been fantastic most of the time but the fall baitfish meal plan is also kicking in. Pretty much everything is working from fly to lure. Good times with lots of guest stars including largemouth, various panfish and the occasional northern.

Getting lots of calls for salmon and steelhead - the water in the St Joe is still warm and fish that are in the system are confined to survival mode. This should change next week and the Dowagiac is slowly coming back online, so any type of fishing will be doable the next few weeks including big smallies, big salmon and potentially steelhead.



CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY!


DOWAGIAC RIVER: The dam removal project is rapidly coming to an end. While some work will continue to be done over the next year, almost all of it will be on shore. So, this means the Dowagiac can continue to heal from 100 plus years of being dammed, and then having the dam removed. It looks pretty damn good! See what I did there...

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.
