There is nothing more exciting than a huge Smallmouth Bass exploding out of the water as it attacks your bait. The lakes around Tomahawk hold trophy size Bass, both Largemouth and Smallmouth. The Smallmouth Bass fishing on Lake Alice and Lake Mohawksin are true trophy Bass waters.
Walleye fishing is great on the area lakes with spring and fall being the best times to fish for trophy walleye’s. The spring walleye run on the river system is something you must try!
Panfishing? You bet, there is nothing more rewarding then the smiles on kids faces as they catch perch, bluegill and crappie.

When anglers think of the Tomahawk region, the Wisconsin River and developed reservoirs take center stage. Clearly, the Wisconsin River is the premier river resource in the state as today’s clean water sustains a diversified fishery of incredible size. Anglers can choose from fishing the free-flowing portions of the river or one of the famous Wisconsin River reservoirs (“flowages” in Wisconsin). Nokomis (north of the city), Mohawksin, Lake Alice (east of the city) and the Spirit River Flowage (southwest) provide significant reservoir fishing opportunities. Walleye, muskie, northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, crappie and bluegill are available for beginners and experts alike. This is trophy country as the fertility of the river nurtures and grows big fish, especially muskie, walleye and smallmouth bass.
