When the snow flies and the wind howls, we know where to find Wisconsin anglers - on the numerous frozen lakes! When you come and visit us at Wild Eagle Lodge, be sure to pack some extra warm clothes so that you can get out on the ice-covered water and pull out that trophy fish. Vilas County is home to one of the largest concentrations of freshwater lakes on earth, and our resort is located on the shores of two: Duck Lake and Lynx Lake. We boast some of the best smallmouth and largemouth bass, walleye, and musky fishing in North America and also have exceptional fishing for crappie, bluegill, and northern pike, all of which provide a fishing variety you’ll find nowhere else. For more than a century, Eagle River has been the fishing destination of choice for anglers from around the Midwest. Winter, spring, summer, and fall: Vilas County is the place to fish. Have a go at sitting on an upturned bucket under a cloudy sky with a light snow coming down and waiting for the tug from beneath the frozen depths. Or, if you prefer, set some tip ups and watch and wait for a bite in the warmth of your Ice fishing shack. The best thing about Ice fishing at Wild Eagle Lodge, is your lodge home is located less than two hundred feet away.
