One of the best things about purchasing a home in Northern Wisconsin is access to some of the state’s most beautiful waterways. The Winnebago System, or Winnebago Pool, is a series of lakes, dams, and rivers that stretches for thousands of miles. It reaches from Shawano to Columbia, touching several cities in between. The local Winnebago System encompasses Lake Winnebago, Lake Winneconne, Lake Butte des Morts, Lake Poygan, Wolf River, and Fox River.


Water Activities in Winnebago County

With so many local waterways to enjoy, water enthusiasts will love being permanent or seasonal residents of the region. Living in the area means plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming, and more. Fishing is a regional favorite, with dozens of native species of edible fish, including white bass, largemouth bass, and walleyes occupying local waters. Lake Winnebago hosts an annual bass fishing contest for competitive fishermen and women. Boat racing and ice racing events also take place on this lake.

If you’re a boater, you can dock at one of the local marinas and enjoy springs and summers on the water. In the winter, waterways turn into beautiful settings for ice fishing. At shallow depths of nine to 15 feet, local lakes freeze over quickly, attracting anglers from all over the country. Lake Winneconne is a prime fishery in the winter, fed by the Wolf River. Every five years, fishers are also allowed to spear fish for sturgeon on this lake. Lake Poygan is another popular spot for anglers, where you’ll see dozens of shacks dotting the lakefront throughout the winter season.
