Fishing At It's Finest!

Whether you’re cranking’ baits for bass, walleye, northern, or just funsie fishing’ for some slab size crappies the Lac du Flambeau main chain of 10 lakes that cover some 9,000 acres plus its 100 other concentrated bodies of water are all crystal clear spring fed mesotrophic types. Their glacier-carved structure along with weed beds, drop offs, sand bars and fish shelters offer the angler action from early  spring through late fall.

The William J. Poupart Fish Hatchery at the lower end of Pokegama Lake transplants millions of walleye, bass and musky fry and fingerlings into Lac du Flambeau lakes each year, fortifying the future of angling and the theme "Fishing at its finest in Lac du Flambeau."

Local bait and tackle shops are always ready to help the newcomer with local conditions, along with bait types for the best action.

The main chain of ten lakes is connected by channels that will accommodate the average pleasure and fishing boat. There are many boat ramps. Try us for a new line-wetting experience.

World Record Musky Waters

Some of our lakes are listed by the Department of Resources as likely to produce a world's record weight-class musky. Since 1975, Lac du Flambeau lakes have established 3 new world's line class records for musky recorded with the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.
