Tomahawk Fishing Information

Tomahawk Fishing Information
Lake Tomahawk is located in Lincoln County, Wisconsin. A small town of about 475 Native Americans of the same name abuts the lake. The site offers year-round fishing and other outdoor activities.


In addition to Lake Tomahawk, there are several other large bodies of water which offer ample fishing opportunities, including Lakes Nokomis, Mohawksin, Alice and the Spirit River Flowage, located near the city of Tomahawk several miles southwest of Lake Tomahawk.

Fish Types

Small and largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike, muskies and pan fish such as perch, bluegill and crappie can all be found in the waters in and around Lake Tomahawk.

Time Frame

The spring fishing opener is a big event in Lake Tomahawk. Walleye run on the river system in the spring as well. Summer offers dawn-to-dusk fishing. Fall is the time to catch trophy-size muskies. Wintertime on the lake sees shacks dotting the surface to shelter ice-fishers.


Campgrounds and RV parks, bed and breakfasts, motels, hotels and resorts are all available in the area.

Related Activities

Camping, hiking, boating, swimming, cross-country skiing and biking are several additional activities available in the area.
