    The fishing on Delavan has been hit or miss.  The fishing has improved from the mid August slump but the continued heat is lowering the numbers.  The average catch is about 10-12 game fish in a 4 hour trip.  The only good thing with the warmer weather is that there are a few more northern pike in the daily catch. Largemouth bass hav...
