Conditions : St. Joeseph River: This will be the last web fishing report until the fall trout and salmon migration begins sometime in September. The spring steelhead run is over. A total of 4,930 spring steelhead have been counted moving past the South Bend fish ladder. This ranks the 2015 spring steelhead migration as the 10th largest run since 1998. The record high spring steelhead migration was 11,685 fish set in 2000 and the record low was 1,908 fish set in the spring of 2010. Bodine State Fish Hatchery has completed steelhead stockings into the St. Joe. Over 150,000 winter run and summer run steelhead have been stocked and are now making their way downstream to Lake Michigan. These fish should return to the St. Joe in two to three years. As the river temperatures go up the warmer water species will dominate the river. May is a good month for walleye and smallmouth bass fishing will be good from May until July. Catfish will be good all summer long. The fishing hotline will resume when good numbers of trout and salmon begin their fall migration into Indiana waters of the St. Joe. Good luck fishing this summer and thank you for your interest in the St. Joe River Trout and Salmon Program.
