Langlade County Lake Information

With 841 natural lakes, 225 streams and 200 spring ponds, Langlade County provides unlimited fishing opportunities from pan fish to musky. Many of the lakes have public launch access. However, most County lakes are small (less than 100 acres) and are located in remote forest settings. The nearly 400 miles of trout streams support excellent populations of brook, brown and rainbow trout.

Eastern Langlade County is also home to one of the finest trout streams in the Midwest. The Wolf River offers excellent dry-fly fishing, especially in May and June, with good catches into autumn. The famed trout waters occur in a 40-mile section between Highway T, south to Highway M, and are divided into 10 public access points. This section of the river has a steep gradient creating numerous complex rapids and should only be navigated by experienced anglers. From Post Lake Dam to Highway T, the river is slow moving and is easy to float with a canoe. Anglers will find good populations of northern pike, walleye, bass and musky.
