Fishing on Geneva Lake
Located in southeast Wisconsin near many major metropolitan areas, Geneva Lake is a popular fishing lake. Summer pleasure boat traffic becomes extremely heavy during summer. Many local anglers choose to fish this lake during the week to avoid the heavy traffic.
Excellent structure, abundant forage and depth combine to create a productive fishery. Stocking efforts of brown and lake trout have established excellent angling opportunities. The lake is best known for its quality smallmouth bass population, though largemouth bass and northern pike are well represented here too.
Other great area lakes for fishing are: Lake Delavan, Lake Beulah, Whitewater Lake, Green Lake, Lake Benedict, Lake Lorraine, Silver Lake, Lauderdale Lakes, Lake Tombeau, Turtle Lake, Lake Mary and Elizabeth, Lake Como and many more ...

The Witches of Whitewater
Whitewater, WI
What most of us know about Whitewater are of a fine university, great parks and our old neighbors to the north located in the northwest corner of Walworth County, Wisconsin. But, what many of us don't know are the things that lurk in the shadows there and ignite the subconscious in uncharted areas deep in the mind. Search the creepy legends for yourself - visit the site where the legends began at the spot of the former Spiritualist Collge, The Morris Pratt Institute or "The Witches Triangle" which include the three cemeteries in town. Take a stroll through the ancient Indian Burial Grounds. See if you can checkout the "Witches Book" form the UW/Whitewater campus library. If the librarian will admit that the book exists then we advise you not to read it as legend has it that all who set eyes on its pages will commit suicide! Of course, beware of "The Witches Tower" in Starin Park as many have seen very strange witches rituals there.
