Southest Michigan River Fishing and Lake Chapin Shores

Angler's Dream: Fishing in SW Michigan

The St. Joseph River, which flows into Lake Chapin, creates one of the best fishing areas in the Midwest. 600+ acre Lake Chapin was formed when the Berrien Springs Dam was constructed on the St. Joe River in 1908 and has since become a consistently top-ranked fishing destination. The St. Joe River below Berrien Springs is a world-class steelhead fishery stocked with more than 250,000 fish every year. A fish ladder on the river in nearby Berrien Springs allows steelhead and king salmon to make their annual journey. Your Southwest Michigan lake home puts you right in front of all the action. And we mean GREAT fishing!If you want waters teeming with steelhead, walleye pike, northern pike, salmon, bass, trout, and more, come to Lake Chapin Shores. Check out this 42" northern pike our newest resident caught just a few feet off of our shore a couple of weeks after moving into his new Michigan lake home, !
