Chain of Lakes in Douglas County, Wisconsin, Fishing Reports
Eau Claire Chain of Lakes is made up of 11 connected spring
fed, clear water lakes, surrounded by an abundant forest of
large pine and hardwood trees. These lakes make up the
headwaters of the Eau Claire River, which flows into the St.
Croix River at Gordon, WI. The three larger lakes, Upper
Eau Claire, Middle Eau Claire and the Lower Eau Claire, act
as the focal point, with 8 smaller spring fed lakes, linked
and feeding into them. Fishing is excellent in the
spring and the fall. The lakes support a good population of
game fish. Included are Muskellunge, Northern and Walleye
Pike, Small and Largemouth Bass, with Crappies, Bluegills,
Sunfish, and Perch rounding out the species. Good trout
