Turtle Flambeau Flowage:  Muskie | Walleye | Pike | SM Bass | Panfish


Mercer is home to several smaller lakes and a huge lake called the Turtle Flambeau Flowage.  In the smaller lakes in the area, anglers target bass, walleye, panfish, pike and even muskie in some of the lakes.  The Turtle Flambeau Flowage is what stands out in this area though.  The Flowage consists of nine lakes, three rivers and several creeks.  The flowage offers some beautiful surroundings and plenty of water for the outdoor enthusiasts.  Boating and fishing are very popular on the flowage.  Water skiing and jet skiing are permitted in some areas, but very limited, which makes it nice for the fisherman looking to find some peaceful surroundings.

Fishing Tips

The flowage gets the most attention here and it should.  The fishing is very good for smallmouth bass, walleye and muskie.  Some very big crappie are caught here too and you will definitely run into some northern pike here as well.  Don’t expect to find too many big pike in these waters though.  Take a look at our Mercer, WI Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
