Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin

Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!

Fishing Report

Mid  July,  2014   -   Lakeland Area Fishing Report

altCool night time temps have held most of the Lakeland Area Lakes right around the 70 degree mark.  This is not our usual summertime weather, but the fish are still cooperating and it’s a great time to be out on the water.

Walleye fishing can be super this time of year if you concentrate on sunrise and sunset times.  Walleyes feed heavily during these low light times and can be found on weed edges in shallower lakes in the 12 to 16 foot range.  The deeper lakes containing rock bars and points in the 20 to 30 foot zone will also attract them.  Using Nightcrawlers and Leeches on a 1/8 ounce jig, along with slip-bobber set ups have been working great.  Color can be a big factor on many lakes.  Try different color jigs until you find the one that is out producing the rest.  Drag the jig across the bottom with small hops, and pauses.  With these cooler water temps, a slow presentation is crucial.
