A dilemma for steelhead anglers occurs every winter: The St. Joseph River is full of steelhead, but it's snowy and it's cold.
How badly do you want to catch them?
Mike Jones of Mishawaka wants to catch them badly. Fishing's in his blood - year-round. When he's not chasing steelhead or walleyes in the winter, he's trying to outfox catfish or bluegill at other times of the year.
That's why he spends as much time as he can on the river and his success speaks for itself.
"Last year, my fishing partners and I caught 137 steelhead from late October through March," he said.
With more fish in the river this year, December through March should be even better.
If you can handle the weather.
