Primary Species of Fish

Muskie, Walleye, Northern Pike & Largemouth Bass

This area is home to some very good fishing for muskie, walleye, northern pike and largemouth bass.  For many anglers, walleye and muskie would be primary and the pike and bass fishing would be secondary, however, many anglers enjoy fishing for northern pike and largemouth bass.  Bass are under fished by most anglers here and there are a lot of them in the area lakes.

Secondary Species of Fish

Smallmouth Bass, Perch, Crappie & Bluegill

Smallmouth bass aren’t here in big numbers, however, you will find plenty of panfish in the many area lakes.  Perch, crappie and bluegill are all available throughout the area lakes.
