The Chippewa Flowage is one of the best bodies of water to fish in all of Wisconsin.  It is a premier fishery for many different species of fish.  Anglers target muskie, northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and panfish on the flowage.  Largemouth bass and northern pike have been showing up in better numbers, especially in the clearer, weedier western basin.  The smallmouth fishery has become outstanding in the darker, river-connected waters of the eastern basin.

This is a unique fishery because it fishes like a big water destination, but most of the lake is protected well, so you can fish the majority of this lake with a smaller boat with no problems.  A bigger, faster boat is nice to get you around the lake faster, but if you have a smaller boat, you can have a blast here.

The Chippewa Flowage is also home to the world record muskie that weighed in at 69 pounds and 11 ounces.  There are plenty of places to stay on this body of water and many fishing guides are available to help you have a better fishing trip.
