Fishing & Sailing

Berrien Springs Dam and Fish Ladder

One of the favorite fishing sites along the St. Joseph River. Recent major modifications to the dam include a fish ladder that allows salmon and steelhead to migrate upstream in the fall; return to Lake Michigan in the spring. Public access is available both above and below the dam. St. Joseph River is well known for its steelhead, giant coho salmon, walleye, smallmouth bass, panfish and pike

Gold Coast Fishing Company

Gold Coast Fishing Company caters to smaller groups of people looking to get out on Lake Michigan or the St. Joseph River in chase of salmon, steelhead, and trout, as well as to folks who just want to get out on the river and go fun fishing.
