Walleye, bass, musky & more entice anglers

In the heart of the Northwoods, you’ll find a tree-lined paradise for anglers and boaters. Rhinelander itself is home to dozens of lakes, and you can discover hundreds more within a short drive.

Some of northern Wisconsin’s most famous fishing lakes can be found in the Rhinelander Area, including Boom Lake, Lake George, Lake Julia and the Willow Flowage. Cast your line for walleye, bass, crappie, bluegill, northern pike or the even the elusive musky—“the fish of 10,000 casts.”

Many lodging properties are located right on the water and cater to anglers and boaters. So, whether you’re jigging for walleye or simply want to enjoy a relaxing pontoon boat ride, set sail for the Rhinelander Area.
