Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Fish Delavan Lake, 6/19/23 – 6/26/23

With the stable weather the fishing has been great. I’ve been catching anything that swims in
the lake this past week. It’s a great time to take a first-time angler out on the water.
Northern Pike have finally started to bite on the outside weed edge. I’ve been catching my fish
on lindy rigged suckers. The best depth for me has been 20-26 ft of water. I’ve been fishing from the
Village Supper Club point to the Oriental boathouse. The size is still a bit small, the biggest fish last week
was 30 inches.
Walleye fishing has been good. The fish I’ve been catching have been caught on nightcrawlers
either on a lindy rig or a split shot rig right off the weedline in 21-24 ft of water. Look for the fish by
Browns Channel or by the Village Supper club point. I caught several legals last week and some right at
17 ¾ inches. The best time to fish for them has been at first light.
Crappies can still be caught. They are right in the shallow weeds in 12 ft of water. I have
exclusively been using purple plastics and they are working very well. The plastic is tipped on a 1/32 oz
Arkie Jig. Good fishing has been found by Willow Point.
Largemouth bass can be caught on the deep weedlines. Concentrating on main lake points or
fishing them in ultra shallow slop are both good choices. The slop fish are biting on snag proof frogs or
All Terrain Stiks. The best location is under the bridge on the inlet. For the deep weedline fish, try
casting nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig. Some of the bass I caught last week were 17-18 inches.
Good location are by the west end by the island.
Bluegill fishing remains awesome. There are a lot of fish still in the 3-4 ft range. Also, there has
been good success in the 20-22 ft range. The best bait has been leaf worms or wax worms. Slip bobbers
remain the best presentation.
Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-
