Fishing is a Northwest Wisconsin staple. With our abundant lakes and rivers, it's no surprise that some of the best fishing happens off our shorelines.
From calm and quiet small lakes to...well, calm and quiet streams and rivers, a day spent fishing in Northwest Wisconsin is a day you won't forget.

Nestled in the northwestern portion of Wisconsin, Lake Wissota is located just east of Chippewa Falls, WI, and north of Highway 29. The reservoir was created in 1915 to provide flood control and a source of hydroelectric power along the Chippewa River. The lake offers a number of shore fishing sites along Highway X and provides anglers many opportunities throughout the year.
