St. Joseph River Mottville, MI

Has any one paddled the St. Joseph River between Mottville, MI and Bristol IN during summer time such as August? How low can it be?

The data I studied shows August as the month with the lowest discharge; however, I was not able to find data showing historical gage height, so I am kind of lost trying to estimate how deep/shallow it can be.

In addition, assuming the river is very low: does any one know the composition of the bottom of the river? mud, sand, rocks, limestone, etc…

Many thanks!

River conditions,
Check with The South Bend Paddlers Club. I know they paddled that stretch before, The address is

David in Niles

in season
check with the folks at Fluid Fun in Bristol…

It looks like I’ll have to join that group to find out further about the River.
