New Webcam: Running at Michigan’s Berrien Springs Dam Fish Ladder


Thanks to a new partnership with Adco Fly Cast, LLC, the webcam at the Berrien Springs Dam fish ladder on the St. Joseph River is back in operation.

The Berrien Springs Fish Ladder Camwebcam provides real-time, close-up looks at Steelhead, salmon and other fish as they move upstream through the fish ladder.

The site used to house a webcam that was popular with anglers, but it was discontinued in 2016 due to high costs. Adco Fly Cast, in collaboration with Michigan-based Evoke Kayaks, generously offered to make improvements to the infrastructure at the fish ladder in order to reduce those costs. American Electric Power (who owns the dam), the DNR (who maintains the fish ladder), Adco Fly Cast and several contractors worked together to complete the project in spring 2018.

“During the period when the webcam was down, we received numerous requests to bring it back,” said Brian Gunderman, a DNR fisheries unit manager out of Plainwell. “The DNR is very thankful to Paddle and Pole for making this service available to anglers.”

The webcam went live June 28. It can be found at Berrien Springs Dam fish ladder or on the DNR’s Berrien Springs Dam fish ladder webpage in the Additional Resources section..
