Delavan Lake Fishing Report 9/13/21 through 9/20/21

                With the cooler nights, the water temperature is starting to drop.  The fishing remains above average and the boat traffic is below average.

                Largemouth bass are starting to move out of their tight summer schools and can be found throughout the weedline in 12-14 ft of water.  In the early morning, the top water bite is available and you can also find them casting medium diving crankbaits.  The best patterns are chrome/blue or perch for the crankbaits.  The best location has been just west of the Yacht Club or by the Browns Channel weedline.

                Northern pike action is starting to improve.  With the cooler water, the fish are moving into the 12-14 ft depth range.  They can be caught on Thill slip bobbers fished with medium suckers or casting white spinner baits.  The best location is the Viewcrest Bay or the weed flat by Browns Channel.  As the fall progresses, the northern pike action will continue to improve.

                Walleye fishing has been slow.   There is some action coming from chrome/blue jigging Rapalas in 20-22 ft of water, or lindy rigging jumbo leeches.  The best location has been by the concrete point or by Willow point.  The walleye bite is always best in the fall, so the cooler nights will help improve the bite in the coming weeks.

                Crappie fishing has been above average in the 30-35 ft depth range.  They can be caught on slip bobbers and fat head minnows.  The fish are in the main lake basin.  Look for them by Willow Point or in front of Assembly Park.  They are typically soft this time of year, so you want to get them on ice quickly.

                Bluegill fishing has been average.  The best bite is in the 12-15 ft depth range.  The fish are biting on small leaf worms or wax worms fished on an ice jig.  The best color is chartreuse or orange.  I’ve been catching most of my fish by Del Mar subdivision.

                Good luck and I hope to see you on the water.  For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 608-883-2050
