This should answer your question...the river is so low you can walk across it with your snow boots!!!...seen half dead salmon yesterday guarding nests...won't bite anything....steelhead are showing up near the piers...looks more hopefull...

There are fry everywhere in the shallows which means some of the salmon already spawned successfully...time for the steelies!!!

My brother-in-law lives in Jones and is gonna try to do some walleye fishing on the Joe before the 15th, I don't live in the area but I am trying to get him some info on the fishery. Are there any good spots to fish from shore? He is gonna try the dam by Mottville. He is a novice walleye angler and any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Was out 2/29. 530 am till noon. 2 of us got 11 walleyes. 2 keepers one 24' and one 16'. Pretty much a bustout. Most fish, about 10 came near the dam.

Was out monday below berrian springs. Walleye were tough but I managed to jig up three keepers in about four hours. They seem to be hitting lightly on crazy colored jigs, like Blue, purple and black. Did better down river more, caught nother near the dam. Across from the boat launch I caught a couple of small sauger.

They seemed to be taking lots of steelhead on the spawn sacs. I tried a couple of crank baits while i was jigging but nothing. I saw nearly everyone catch a steely and a few were giant.
