Fishing right now on the St. Joe and Kalamzoo river has been good but after some melt offs last week we are excited to be getting colder weather. So, right now both the St Joe and Kalamazoo are too high and muddy but with these consistently cold temps they should lower and visibility should become a lot better. Prior to the run off fishing was good on plugs and back bouncing spawn but then got tough and now is getting good again! Back bouncing spawn with orange and chartreuse bags have been the most productive. When running plugs the same colors have been working along with darker plugs as well. You will want to be fishing the slower water in deeper pools next to sandy flats as this is what we call winter water.
