Conditions : St. Joeseph River: The steelhead continue to move into Indiana waters of the St. Joe River. As of April 16th, 6,224 spring steelhead have been counted moving past the South Bend Fish Ladder. Combined with the steelhead that moved into the river last fall, the total steelhead count is up to 13,592 fish. The South Bend fish ladder is passing an average of 323 fish per day. Fishing has been good and the spawn is just getting ready to begin. The combined fall and spring steelhead count is the second largest migration since 1999 when 19,655 steelhead were counted moving past South Bend. So get in on some of this steelhead action anglers because, it doesn't get much better that this!

River water levels are still dropping and are almost ideal for spring spawning. The river is fishable by both boat and shore fishermen. River water temperature is 50 degrees. The fishing hotline will now be updated weekly until the spring steelhead migration is over. Thank you for your interest in the St. Joe River Trout and Salmon program.
