You have a link for that site? Cycleguy, no worries here amigo. Understand the information/concerns shared on any public forumn is what leads to taking action. Where do the phosphates entering the creek come from? That would could be the most likely source of nutrient contamination.

Not attacking anyone for posting here just saying it isn't enough, if you want to potentially change the situation.

Im glad you mentioned that cycleguy. I have been to town Bd meetings, the first time 4 years ago. There were other fisherman there also voicing their opinions. I have also contacted the WDNR numerous times and have had e-mails from the Biologist in this area. The rhetoric goes around and around and there is no plan to circumvent these problems. Its more of a wing & prayer approach at this time. I wish more would contact town Bd memebers and the WDNR, JMO. Dont know if it will make a dent but its worth trying.

Here's the thing, Cycle:  if these posts had not been placed, I would not have even been aware of the problems.  A waste of time?  Sometimes a forum is for more than the bass I caught today in ## FOW.  Thanks to those who took the time to inform all of us and not just complain and wring your hands.

I hope everyone feels better after posting their complaints here… because it is essentially a waste of time.  Start contacting the Delavan board members.  Make your time matter…. You are preaching to the choir here.

Ive caught hundreds of Bass over 4lbs the last 8 years, some up to 6lb and have seen 8lbers. Basicially whats going on now is the ruination of this lake as we know it. Too many conflicting factors have slowly destroyed this lake and it will get worse, much worse. You cant have it both ways. Fishing vs recreation. First of all the decaying weeds are sucking oxygen out of the lake along with phosphorous entering in Jackson creek,The weed spraying if stopped now can still save it, but that dosent look like its going to stop. The lake will be dead again and no use for pleasure boating again. What do the home owners want ?  A declining lake will ruin everyones property values.   Thanks alot for killing this remarkable fishery !
