Welcome to the Chippewa Flowage
The winter months have arrived here in the North of Wisconsin -- for those of us who live here and had the pleasure to be your host this past year we would like to thank you and look forward to your visit with us again on the Chippewa Flowage.
The snow comes, the lake freezes. After a month or two of silence the snowmobilers arrive to explore the trails.
The restaurants and other businesses you may have visited and enjoyed are at a slower pace during the months ahead. As the closely woven blanket of white covers our countryside, and the waters of our great and majestic Chippewa Flowage freeze tight with ice, we are again reminded of the joy and excitement that was with each of us just a few months back.
Experience winter in Northern Wisconsin. Many resorts have lodging available for guests who enjoy the wide variety of winter activities here. You can snowmobile, ice fish, cross country ski and snowshoe, hunt and more. See the stars like you have never seen them before. Sawyer County maintains over 500 miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Sled over lakes, woods, frozen swamps and meadows. Try the Chippewa Flowage Pin Tour - get stamped at 10 participating businesses and earn a free limited edition lapel pin. No purchases are required.
The newly opened ice fishing season on the Chippewa Flowage includes panfish, smallmouth and largemouth bass, northern and crappies. Checking out the lake in the winter can give you a whole new perspective about finding your favorite summer fishing holes. Remember, walleye and muskies are protected in the winter. Cross country ski trails are nearby or make your own trail across the lake. Snowshoe a path and discover a surprising variety of animal tracks. With minimal light pollution, find a dozen constellations. You can even see galaxies with just a good pair of binoculars. Enjoy restaurants, shopping, bar hopping and other fun. It is warm inside and we are looking forward to seeing you! You will get a friendly welcome everywhere you go.
