ABOUT THE LAKE
Largest Wilderness Lake
The Chippewa Flowage has long been recognized as one of the finest fishing waters in the country with excellent musky, northern, walleye, bass and crappie fishing. It was here that one of the world’s largest muskies was caught, weighing 69 pounds, 11 ounces, and measuring 63 ½ inches long.
With the purchase of much of the land surrounding this 17,000 acre lake by the State of Wisconsin and the U.S. Forest Service, Lake Chippewa will remain Wisconsin’s largest wilderness lake.
Lake Chippewa is 30 miles long and 18 miles wide; its rugged shoreline is cut by numerous bays and channels, its wide expanse dotted by hundreds of islands. In the heavily wooded areas around the lake you’ll find eagles, osprey, blue herons, loons, ducks, grouse, otter, beaver, mink, raccoon, deer, bear, and other small game.
The Chippewa Flowage has proven to be one of the best fishing lakes in the country. Add the undeveloped shoreline, and you have a true wilderness experience!
