Fishing Season on Trippe & Cravath Lakes is Open

Notice of OPENING OF fishing season, Trippe and Cravath lakes, Walworth County

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE That the fishing seasons on Trippe Lake and Cravath Lake in the city of Whitewater, Walworth County will open on Oct. 1, 2022.   

Trippe and Cravath lakes underwent a drawdown of water levels in 2019 as part of a project aimed to control invasive aquatic plants, to compact sediment and to improve water quality, navigability and habitat. Both lakes were closed to fishing under s. NR 20.33 (1), Wis. Admin. Code to protect game fish that were concentrated in the lakes during the drawdown. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has determined that water levels have reached normal levels and fish are no longer being concentrated and vulnerable to overfishing.
