Although we know summer is a great time to head out on the chain for fishing, you can’t go wrong with a fall fishing trip! If you’re interested in a hard-core venture out on the chain or are looking to take a kids first fishing trip, Wild Eagle Lodge is a great place to get started. From the resort, you can hop right onto the chain of lakes and adventure throughout the waters. These lakes are home to: muskellunge, walleye, perch, small-mouth and large-mouth bass, sauger, northern pike, and a variety of panfish! If you’re not ready to head out on your own, be sure to grab an experienced guide.
If you’re not up for a fishing trip you can still head out for a stroll through the lakes by motor-boat, kayak, or canoe! Once again, don’t forget to bring the camera with you because you will definitely want to capture the amazing views of the water and fall foliage while adventuring the waters.
