    Delavan Lake fishing is very good right now.  The lake is productive on multiple species.  As summer starts to heat up, the lake is getting very busy.  Prepare to get to the lake early if you want to get a parking spot as well as a vacant fishing spot.  Even though the fishing pressure is high, there are still plenty of good b...

                Fishing remains fantastic on Lake Geneva.  Most of the fish are located between 10 and 15 ft of water.  With the warming water temperature the bait of choice has switched from fat head minnows to nightcrawlers.           ...

    June 10, 2019 Steve Suman   This week’s weather forecast shows lows in the 40s, highs in the low 70s, and various “slight” chances for rain and thunderstorms. As always, those predictions can change at any moment, so keep your plans – and an eye on the sky.   “Last week we had warm days and sunny skies,&...

    What was building into a great week of fishing slowed by Sun/Mon as the area got hit with a couple cooler fronts.  Overall though, fishing was very good, and should return again by week’s end.   Smallmouth Bass:  Very Good-Excellent – Season is ALL catch and release, but lots of great reports as Smallies are b...

    This is going to be a short weekly report his week as I just blew a blood vessel in my right arm a couple of days ago and found out that I hand have bad tendinitis according to the doctor. I am supposed to lay off using my arm. With that said fishing has been very good for most species with walleyes and crappies topping out the list. If the wate...

Summer weather was a long-time coming – get ou...

                    Fishing is above average overall.  Most of the fish remain in the shallow waters, under 10 ft for the most part.  The best bite on the lake is Bluegills and Largemouth bass.                 Crappie fishing ha...

                As long as the weather keeps warming, the fishing keeps improving daily.  This past week we had significant SW winds which made most of the lake unfishable. I’ve been catching most of my fish from the Abbey Springs area to the Military Academy.     &n...

    After several weeks of significant rain and crazy temperature swings we are finally starting to see things settling down. Water temperatures have moved to the upper 60 degree range with some locations pushing the low 70’s. This warming trend has fish on the move and feeding aggressively. We are seeing very good action from both crappies an...

                Fishing is really very good and improving daily.  The bass and bluegills spawn is mere days away.  Most fish are starting to move into the shallows in 1-2 ft of water.  Boat traffic for this time of year is still very low due to the cool water temps.        ...

                    This has been one of the coldest springs I can recall.  The smallmouth bass are just starting to spawn and most years they would be totally done by now.  Overall fishing has been improving daily with the warmer weather.     &nbs...

    By John Luthens There is something inherently wild about a river island: A hiding place from the currents of the modern world, a sense of adventure that echoes along the swirling shoreline in the age-old voices of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. It doesn’t have to be big, and it needn’t be remote. It becomes that much more adventurou...

    With the weather patterns such that they are and the depth of Lake Geneva, the lake is still very cool.  The most consistent fishing is in the 3-4 ft water depth range.                 Smallmouth bass have been sporadic.  If you can find the bait fish, you will li...
