The Chippewa Flowage, Wisconsin’s third-largest lake
Wisconsin’s third-largest lake, is preserved in her pristine wilderness state for you and all future generations to enjoy. In 1924, the Wisconsin/Minnesota Power and Light Company completed the dam across the Chippewa River, backing up the waters of 11 natural lakes, nine natural rivers and countless streams and ponds to form the Lake Chippewa Flowage.
The Chippewa Flowage is known for its great numbers of trophy size musky as well as being home to the current world record musky (see our replica in the Lodge). With 200 miles of undeveloped shoreline and 140 islands, the “Big Chip” is a recreational paradise with an abundance of fish & wildlife.
To help your Chippewa Flowage vacation “be complete” we highly recommend that you hire a professional fishing guide.
