The Eagle River area is a world-class fishing destination – the hub of all Northwoods’ fishing. Our numerous lakes are well known for their trophy-sized fish – musky, northern, walleye and bass. Plus panfish are plentiful and are always fun to catch for a homemade fish fry. Our rivers and streams are also a popular attractions for fly fishing and don’t forget wintertime offers great ice fishing opportunities too. If you haven’t been fishing in area waters in years or you don’t know the best spots, there are many expert area guides eager to help you lure in the big ones and to provide lessons for a lifetime. Area bait shops are always helpful in sharing specific information about the hottest baits or lures. So come and enjoy our diverse fishery. You will be glad that you did.


Eagle River lakes are open, with anglers heading out for crappies, bluegills and perch.  The bite is fair.

All Eagle River area lakes are open, and anglers are moving out to go for what is normally a pan fishing bonanza right after ice-out. Not so thus far this year. The temperatures are simply too cold, and the action while there all day, is fair.  Hopefully the weather will warm up so that next week’s fishing opener will provide some top flight action across the board.
