Lake Geneva fishing report 6/11/17 through 6/19/17

With the warm weather, Lake Geneva has been starting to heat up and fishing has gone from below average to excellent in just a week.  Boat traffic has also increased so make sure you get out on the water early.

Rock bass have been everywhere throughout the water column and every spot you fish you will catch them.  This is the best time to take a kid fishing as the action is non-stop.  I’ve caught the most rock bass by Colemans Point or by Elgin Club in 12-14 ft of water.  Nightcrawlers or white hair jigs are producing great numbers but almost any bait will work.

Largemouth bass fishing has been picking up.  The best location is the weedline in Williams Bay or in Trinkes Bay.  The best depth is 10-12 ft of water.  You can either get them by drop shotting a 4 inch finesse worm or a nightcrawler.  The action should be good for next week or so due to the water temp.  Once the water gets too warm, the fish will go deep.

Bluegill fishing has been good in 15-17 ft of water.  A lot of the fish still have eggs and haven’t spawned yet so make sure you release those fish.   The best spot has been by Knollwood or Gage Marine in Williams Bay.

Lake Trout have started to pick up in the main lake basin.  The best water depth to start is 100-110 ft of water.  The prime time is the early morning hours.  Green and nickel spoons have been producing the most action.  Look for suspended fish about 70 ft down.

Walleye fishing has been good at night.  Abbey Springs and the east shore of Williams Bay are both productive areas.  Large Rapalas have been the best bait in black/chrome or black/gold combinations.  Work a depth of 12-15 ft of water. 

Smallmouth bass fishing has been slow.  The smallies have completed their spawn and are scattered.  I’m picking up one here or there without a consistent pattern.

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