    Lake Geneva is in its mid-summer transition from a shallow water bite to a deep water bite.  The thermocline has not yet formed and is still a few degrees a way for the deep water bite to be really hot. Largemouth bass fishing has been average in the 12-15 ft depth range.  Anglers are catching them either drop shotting or fishing Texas r...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler We have had quite a bit of rain lately and this has caused a slight slowdown in trout fishing.  I was fishing up to the headwaters and the fishing was excellent.  I was using a Panther Martin spinner that was green and white.  I had good luck using the larger spinners as the fish seemed very aggressive.  I...

    Steve Suman This could be a nice week, but it is difficult to tell by the forecasts! Temperatures warm through the week and every day shows “chances” of thunderstorms, but all less than 50 percent.

    It is shaping up to be a regular summer, finally.  Water temps are in the mid to upper 70’s (saw one lake hit 80 degrees on a warm Saturday).  The higher water temps are pushing some fish deeper, while making others more active. Largemouth Bass:  Very good.  The largemouth population continues to grow here in the Nor...

    Delavan Lake fishing has been very good.  With the holiday weekend and the nice weather, the fishing pressure has been extreme.  For the best success, you want to fish early in the day or after about 4 p.m.    The walleye fishing has been awesome which is unusual for this late in the summer. Walleye fishing has been excell...

    With the warmer weather, the patterns are starting to change.  The fish are starting to move to deeper water.  The thermocline is starting to form, however, the weather is cooler than normal so it may take some time to fully form. Northern Pike fishing has been spotty.  Most of the pike are being caught in 20-23 ft of water sporadic...

    By John Luthens There are fishing days that set your heart to fluttering. A hard won limit, figuring out the magic color and presentation when every other boats running into the landing holds nothing but frustrated anglers. Or maybe that fish of a lifetime that smashes your tackle in an epic battle. Then there are the typical small-fish days and,...

    With the holiday weekend fishing was a little tougher due to the heavy fishing pressure.  The boats can be stacked several deep in the best fishing spots so patience is required.   Go early for the best success.  The fishing overall has been consistent with this time of year with several species available for the catch. Largemo...
