Eagle Lake is the third largest lake within the Eagle River Chain, offering 575 acres and a published depth of 34 feet. Although, I did find one hole that, according to my Humminbird Depth Finder, was 38 feet deep. Fishing is always fun on Eagle Lake due to its diversity in both depth and bottom terrain. You will experience some places with rock at the bottom while other areas may have sand, gravel, muck or cabbage.
This lake offers a home for Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass Northern Pike and Walleye. Where you choose to start your fishing adventure will depend upon what type of fish that you're looking for. If you are looking for Panfish, check out the shallows near the channel to Scattering Rice. Walleyes can be had drifting over the gravel in the middle of the lake using Lindy Rigs and Musky anglers are always finding success while working the shores.
Eagle Lake is also the home to the well known Eagle Waters Resort. This historical resort is a favorite for vacationers and locals alike. With a great outside bar, live music on Thursday evenings and an excellent restaurant, it is definitely worth a visit.
A boat launch along with a wonderful county park can also be found along the shores of Eagle Lake. The park is a popular recreational site that is easily accessible by land and water. It offers a tremendous view of the lake, a pavilion and even bird watching opportunities. The park has a first rate beach for swimming with a lakefront area of 440 feet and has become a popular spot to beach your boat and go for a dip.
The Lake's size also attracts those that enjoy spending time out on their sailboat. I've been told that its one of the best lakes for sailing as it always has a breeze!
