    Fishing remains very good.  Most of the game fish are very active with the warmer water temp.  The water temps haven’t risen enough to make the fish go deep.  Most of the fish can be found in 15 ft of water or less.  Right now all the fish have completed spawning and are aggressively feeding. Largemouth bass can be caught...

    Delavan Lake fishing is very good right now.  The lake is productive on multiple species.  As summer starts to heat up, the lake is getting very busy.  Prepare to get to the lake early if you want to get a parking spot as well as a vacant fishing spot.  Even though the fishing pressure is high, there are still plenty of good b...
