Was up over the Easter weekend. The river is still high but has come down several feet. Didn't see anyone fishing and I didn't fish since we are doing recovery from the flooded house that I stay at. I have likely posted my last fishing report since the house is up for sale. All that is left is to do is salvage what is still good.
Was there last weekend. No fishing due to the flooding. Very sad to see the damage done to many of the homes along the river including the one that I stay at. This may be the end of my fishing on the St. Joe. If you get on the river with the high water, please respect the property of those flooded by not making a wake. If the house is flooded, the wake makes a wake inside the house also due to the water pressure. Those that were jet skiing likely did damage to many houses along the river.
That is going to be a tough call this year with the flooding. My place is wet now. It will be some time before I will likely be able to fish, if the place is still there.
Hey boogie i was curious to know if the walleye run up to the dam late feb or early ice out, would you happen to know anything about that? Thanks in advance, just counting the days till i can catch a smallie again i know you know what thats like lol!
I heard from a reliable source that the ice went out this week on the river below the dam. Maybe boats could again navigate the river. Good luck and be safe!

Fished a few times from shore over the Thanksgiving weekend. Not much happening for me but I did see one charter boat land a few fish across from the concrete wall. I wasn't really expecting to catch anything and I was right. Until next time on that side of the lake... tight lines!
Was wondering about the conditions on the St Joe. Any recent report would be great.
I do shore fish so I can't give you a report on the launch. When I have boat fished, we launched in downtown St. Joe and went up river.
