Delavan Lake Information
About Delavan Lake
Delavan Lake is known for having some of the best fishing in Wisconsin. That, and its location in southern Wisconsin close to many metropolitan areas like Milwaukee and Chicago, make Delavan Lake the perfect weekend getaway. The only downside is that it gets so busy during peak season that it's not uncommon to see backups at the boat launch! Delavan Lake is a 1906 acre lake located in Walworth County. It underwent a chemical treatment in 1989 to control excessive rough fish population and high levels of phosphorous, but reopened in 1992. Since then, thanks to stocking by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the lake has excellent game fish populations. You'll find Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye.
Things to do in Delavan Lake
Of course, fishing is the number one thing to do in Delavan Lake. It's actually one of the few lakes in Wisconsin that allows motor trolling. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has even increased the size limits for several gamefish giving you the opportunity to take home an awesome trophy fish. To avoid crowds during the summer months, try fishing in the early morning, evening, or during the week. Don't worry if fishing or relaxing on the lake aren't your thing. There are a ton of great things to do in Delavan just north of the lake. Visit The Dancing Horses Theatre for a show you won't soon forget. Acrobats with their trained horses will entertain you along with a petting zoo, pony rides, and an exotic bird show. The kids will love it!
Day trips from Delavan Lake
Milwaukee is a short drive from Delavan Lake and well worth spending a day there. It's perhaps best known for its famous breweries and the Major League Brewers, but the city is also rich in history and culture. Check out the Milwaukee Art Museum or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society. To learn about the city's history, visit the Pabst Mansion, former home of the man behind Pabst beers, or see what life was like in Old Milwaukee at the Milwaukee Public Museum. For another great metropolis, head southeast for Chicago. Even though it's in another state, it's just an hour and a half away. The Windy City has everything from modern art, fine dining, cutting edge comedy, and of course, the silver Cloud Gate sculpture at Millennium Park, better known as The Bean!
