I have fished the lake the last two mornings. I caught and released a 26 inch Pike, seen several large mouths, but they are not biting. The lake is still cold, and I have not seen any beds being made yet... might be a another week before things start to happen.
Dutchman Lake (Ladl), Waukesha County
I 'spose for the adventure of thru paddling and fishing on 2 lakes and then taking out at a different point than I put in. It would probably involve 2 cars or a bike shuttle. That's the kind of things this kid thinks about in his free time.
I paddled from Parry road to Waterville Road on Sunday to see if I could make it and the way was clear for my 12 foot canoe. I had to manuever thru at least one down tree but it was not too difficult and did not require a pullover. I kept all rods tucked into the canoe to prevent snappage. The parking and unloading seemed more straight forward to me at Parry Road but I would like to paddle thru from above Dutchman to Hunter someday.
