Angler's Dream: Fishing in SW
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. 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, !
