Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Lake Geneva Fishing Report 8/8/19 – 8/12/19

Fishing remains very good.

Summer is drawing to a rapid close so make sure you get out on the water, winter lasts a long time.

Walleye fishing has been very good.  Most of the fish are being caught trolling medium diving crank baits in 12-15 ft of water.  The bigger the crank bait, the better the success.  The only time to catch them is at night.  Look for them by Black Point, Abbey Springs or by Fontana.

Northern Pike fishing has been outstanding.  The fish remain in 35-40 ft of water.  The best success has come in Fontana or by Conference Point.  All the fish are being caught on chubs or suckers on a lindy rig.

Lake Trout have been biting in the main lake basin, 70-90 ft down in 140 ft of water.  The best success has come on spoons.  A few fish can be caught on dodgers and flies also.  I prefer running the lures, 20-30 ft behind the down rigger balls.

Largemouth bass are being caught in 20-30 ft of water on the main weed lines.  Most of the fish are being caught by either Carolina rigging lizards, or dragging jigs on the hard bottom areas of the weed flats.  The best location is either Trinkes or the weed line in Williams Bay.  There can be some success dragging nightcrawlers also in 15-18 ft of water.  The fish in the shallower water seem to be slightly smaller.

Bluegill action has been outstanding. Fish in 18-20 feet of water.  A leaf worm and red worms have been producing the best.  A single hook and split shot will do the trick.  Williams Bay and Elgin Club has been a sure thing.

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