Summer favorites include panfish, bluegill, perch, crappies and white bass. Game fish are also abundant—large- and smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye and the fabled muskellunge all are known to enjoy our waters. Winter ice fishers reel in plenty of lake trout, pike, walleyes, ciscoes and panfish.

It’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, whether you’re seeking peace and solitude and a chance to get away from it all or laughter and fun with a boat full of friends. So come fish Green Lake—come on rowboats or powerboats, congregate on piers or bridges—and indulge in our most time-honored tradition of all.

  • Central Wisconsin’s Big Green Lake has been Dennis Walker’s professional territory for more than 40 years. For years the native fishing guide had a distinction few such professionals can offer. He once caught a 47 inch, 34 1/2 pound lake trout, that held the state record for 14 years. That’s a notable enough achievement for an outdoor guide. It’s even more remarkable when you consider Walker caught the fish when he was just twelve years old. We have an outstanding lake here. It’s waters are deep and clear, with not only a variety of structure, but also a variety of fish ranging from lake trout to pan fish. For more information and rates call – 920-294-0611 or visit
