 World Class Fishing
 
Eagle River is the heart of Northwoods fishing.  

Our lakes are known for their trophy-sized musky, but you are also bound to catch walleye and bass.
When the leaves begin to turn and the fall foliage is brilliant, it is an excellent time
to catch musky. 

So whether you boat out onto one of our beautiful lakes, panfish with the kids, or fly fish for trout in the streams, Eagle River is a world class fishing destination.

If you haven't been fishing for years and don't know the best spots, there are expert guides who will help you lure in the big ones and provide lessons for a lifetime.
