The Tomahawk region is home to more than fifteen lakes and flowages offering great recreational and fishing opportunities for walleye, musky, northern pike, bass and panfish. Each year, several trophy size musky, largemouth bass and smallmouth bass are caught in our beautiful waters. Here is a highlight of just some of our beautiful lakes and fishing opportunities:
Lake Alice: Just under 1,400 acres, Lake Alice in a great fishing lake that holds musky, pike, bass and walleye. It is best known for its excellent panfishing to include perch, bluegills, and crappies. Lake Alice is also a popular ice fishing spot.
Lake Mohawksin: This1,910 acre lake and part of the Wisconsin River System, derives its name from three rivers: “Mo” from the Somo River, “Hawk” from the Tomahawk River, and “Sin” from the Wisconsin River. The lake is home to the mighty musky, some as long at 50 inches. Smallmouth bass, walleyes, northern pike, channel catfish, crappies and blue gills are also plentiful.

Known as a beautiful and productive fish lake, it is also a great place to spot majestic bald eagles. Lake Nokomis is part of a chain of lakes that includes Bridge and Deer Lakes, with more than 4,000 acres of recreation.
Spirit Flowage: A scenic body of water where wildlife is plentiful and the fishing is great. Walleyes are the mainly targeted fish, producing 10 pound fish every year. Northern pike, muskies, crappies, bluegills and huge bullheads can also be found.
