If your done on lower you can always drop in across the street and finish your daily limit on middle. If you got patience it could definitly be a fun day if the weather is good and you are using a kayak or canoe.
Lower Genesee, Waukesha County
Thanks APfisher. Info I'm looking for. Would be nice to have a pretty lake like this one close to Milwaukee where I could count on a meal or two of gills now and then. Hoping to get familiar enough with the lake to do that. Nice with no fee and a new launch also. Printmaker
These are from late spring for whoever was asking about gills.
I was targeting the trout, but got these ones. The one yellow belly was fat with eggs. From the small bay on the east side.
All CPR (the 1 trout I actually caught slipped out of my hand and was planning on keeping lol).
I fished all afternoon all over the lake in my kayak and this is all I caught. Better than being skunked!
Only one of the lakes has a few 40 inch pike. That would be Lower. They feast on the stocked trout. Lakes can grow more big pike if there is some soft fin forage like trout or Cisco. Not very many in there tho. Upper has a few mid 30's pike. Middle has a fair amt of legal size pike but almost all are 26 to 30. There might be a few bigger but I personally haven't seen them in all the years I fished there.
Im no expert on the carp.
Hello! I am posting in this feed, but my questions apply to all three Genesee lakes.
Are there decent pike in here? I normally catch and release, but I wouldn't mind some tips on hwo to hook into one.
I've seen some massive carp on upper genesee-are they big in all 3 lakes? I wouldn't mind hooking into another 20+ pounder like I've caught in the past. Where have people seen them? (I'll take out any common carp I catch).
Thanks - and tight lines.
Landin'Lunkers. Is it possible the bass and trout are eating the bluegill fry? Someone had pm'd me earlier this year saying there were some nice gills in lower Genesee. How many are actually present is another story but I'll try it again for at least a meal. If the gills are on the big side it wouldn't take but a few for a meal. Figure there aren't that many weeds in the lake so they are either in one of the few or off the bottom somewhere. I like the 31 mile door to launch number and the free launch. Can't believe the village of Delevan charges $11.50 for anything under 20'. God put the lake there for our use but municipalities have other ideas on how to make revenue. Printmaker
