The Indiana portion of the St. Joseph River steelhead run is off to an amazing and early start.
As of March 3, more than 3,500 steelhead have been recorded passing over the South Bend Dam ladder since Jan. 1 with most of those coming the last week of February.
We typically don’t see that kind of run until mid-March.
