Fishing in Eagle River

If you’re looking for some of the best fishing in the Northwoods, look no further than Eagle River’s surrounding area lakes and the World’s Largest Chain of 28 Connected Lakes. It’s our favorite place to kick back, cast a line, and reel in some good times – sure, we could be a little biased, but maybe you should check it out for yourself.

With that many lakes to fish on, you’ll need a whole year to test the waters on each one. The good news is, it’s always fishing season around here. Summer offers long days on the lake while winter means setting up camp and drilling into the ice. Spring and fall are favorites for local anglers too and even if the fish aren’t biting, we’re sure you’ll still have a good time.

Our lakes offer a huge variety of fish, but you’ll find a lot of people in search of musky, bass, walleye and panfish throughout the year. If you’re not familiar with the best spots or how to track down certain species, consider hiring a guide to take you around the chain and give you some insider tips. Or, if you’re feeling like showing off your skills, enter the annual National Musky Championship Open.

You’re in for a reel good time when you fish in Eagle River.

FAll Fishing Report

Fish for walleye, musky, crappie, bluegill, perch and smallmouth bass.

Look for fish on weedlines or structures.

Use minnows and crawlers but also use suckerfish to troll for musky.

While the fishing will remain good all the way until ice up, the weather will quickly be taking a turn here soon with cool mornings, frost and less daylight to get out.
