GeorgeWatch Lake

3 posts in this topic

I want to go on an adventure to George Watch lake for slimers. It is a long walk from where you can park at the Centerville beach so I need a warm day. Nobody ever fishes it. They have to be concentrated in the somewhat deeper water/channel. Probobly doesn't hold any big fish but I think about going there every year.

Got a buddy who use to live on Peltier they went back to GWL all I remember then saying it was shallow 4-5' who knows might be good for the pike, we use to catch them pretty good on the backwaters on the Rum in 2-4' next time i see him i'll ask him again if they caught anything.

IMHO you'd be wasting your time. George Watch in the summer is no deeper than a couple feet. I paddle it in a canoe often, picking up trash and it's a lot of dragging bottom and pulling up muck with the paddle. The only place I've ever gotten slimers is off of Main St. Even then it's only hit and miss every now and then. If you decide to try it there are two easy ways to get on it. You can get there from the canoe access, west side of Main St. by the spillway from Peltier. Or the main part of the lake from the Wargo Nature Center off of Main St.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
