Mourning Doves serve as door to new seasons Micah and I will walk again into a new hunting season this afternoon like we’ve walked together into eight Septembers before. Mourning doves are calling us now, more as a way to shake the dust off and welcome a new autumn than anything else. Later it will be more “serious” pursuits of pheasant and duck. Almost certainly, my brother John and his lab Dylan will join us again today as th...

Lake Geneva Fishing Report 7/13/15 through 7/19/15

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 sporadically outside the weedline.  They are being caught on medium suckers and yellow perch.  The best location has been by Fontana Beach or outside of Trinkes.

Smallmouth bass are moving deeper.  They can be caught in 13-15 ft of water.  The best approach has been split shot rigged nightcrawlers or lindy rigged jumbo leeches.  The best locations are by the Yacht Club or by Knollwood.

With the warming weather, the bigger bluegills are also moving deeper.  The biggest fish are being caught in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location has been between Elgin Club and Knollwood.  The best success has come while straight lining leaf worms beneath the boat.  The fish are positioned about 1 foot off bottom.

Lake Trout fishing remains very good.  With the excessive boat traffic, there are a lot more floating weeds so you will have to clean your baits off more frequently.  The fish are biting on chrome spoons or blue and chrome spoons.  The best time to fish for them is the first hour of daylight or at dusk.  The fish will be suspended up the water column in 65-75 ft down in 108-120 ft of water.

Rock bass fishing has been a bit slower.  Most of the fish are being caught in a deeper water depth than normal.  Look for them in about 15 ft of water.  They can be caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers.

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