    Complete DNR Outdoor Report (Reports from conservation wardens, wildlife and fisheries staff and property managers from around the state) While changes in temperature and moisture brought about a slight drop in angling pressure, it may have given the mosquito population a large upper hand once again.  Intermittent rain, followed by heat...

    With the consistent hot weather and no wind, Lake Geneva has been a bit slower than normal.  The water temperature is higher than it has been in recent years, at or around 82 degrees on the surface and this is causing the fish to deviate from their normal summer patterns. The largemouth bass I’ve been catching have been in 18-20 ft of w...

    Delavan lake fishing suffers with consistently hot and humid weather.  We had a few days of cooler weather and the fishing turned on a bit.  We are nearing the end of the summer so boat traffic is starting to increase while everyone gets out one more time before the end of summer. Bluegill fishing has been overall pretty strong.  Th...

    A mix of cooler weather and some high pressure systems took the edge off the hot bite for several species this past week. Still, for anglers willing to fish early and late in the day, good catches are still being reported.Largemouth Bass: Very Good. Maybe it’s due to sheer numbers, but the green bass just don’t seem to slow down. Wacky ...

    For those of you that have recently lost someone dear to you, I am sorry.  I have also lost a big part of my life as well. Just days ago, Lorraine Greene, my 92 year old mother passed away. This is just a portion of the more complete eulogy that I presented at her wake. Lorraine Greene (90) with our lab puppy Scmiddy, wh...

    While not as warm as the previous week, the continued warm weather meant some stable patterns and fairly consistent fishing.  A few high sky days meant the best times were early or late, but, overall the bite has remained good.Smallmouth Bass:  Very good.  Off-shore humps remain best.   Rock and gravel of 18-28’. ...

    By John Luthens I first discovered the lost pond after a fruitless, day-long, bush-whacking safari up a spring-fed trout stream that fed a bigger, Lake Superior river in the wilds of Douglas and Bayfield counties. I was fishless and unsteady on my feet when I stumbled out of the tributary brush and eyed the headwaters.  The rise of brook tro...

    Delavan Lake fishing remains a bit slower than in recent years, however the boat traffic is substantially lighter than in past years.  Bluegill fishing is fantastic.  The overall size of the fish is about 1 inch longer than in past years.  The fish are averaging about 8 inches.  The best water depth has been 13-16 ft on the out...

    Lake Geneva has been rather slow in the last week.  The lake has been full of 3-4 inch bluegills throughout the water column which makes the game fish tricky to fish.  I’ve caught these bluegills anywhere from 6 to28 ft of water.  With the warm summer, the water temperature is some of the highest I’ve seen on Lake Geneva....

    A good week of true summer has helped holster the success of anglers in the Lakeland area for those willing to fish early and late.Temps in the upper 80’s brought the surface temps into the upper 70’s, even on the bigger lakes. Warm water means higher metabolism for fish, the shallows (during low light conditions) filled up with schools...

    The dog days of summer have hit early.  We have had excessive heat and high humidity.  The fishing has been rather slow.  The biggest problem on the lake has been the 3 inch bluegills that seem to be everywhere throughout the water column.  The most consistent bite remains the largemouth bass. The largemouth bass have been conc...

    Delavan lake fishing has been slower than recent years for this particular time of year.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  They are starting to go deeper off the weedline. Bluegill action has been fantastic in 15-20 ft of water.  The bigger fish have been located off the main lake points, such as the Yacht Club or t...

    By John Luthens  I stumble down the July banks of the Milwaukee River and it’s not a pretty sight: camouflage shorts, stained fishing vest, tennis-shoe waders that are laced in double knots for extra stability. The odds are less than even that the worn soles still hold enough tread to cling to the swirling bottom.  Splashing throu...
