Four Seasons Resort is located on the edge of the vast Chequamegon National Forest in Northern Wisconsin’s Bayfield County making this an ideal location for fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hunting, hiking and bicycling.

Lake Namakagon Fishing

Lake Namakagon offers great walleye and northern fishing. This 3,200 acre lake is one of only a handful of lakes in the State of Wisconsin that is managed to be a trophy musky lake (minimum size is 50 inches). Lake Namakagon also offers good fishing for small and large mouth bass and all of the panfish – bluegill, crappie and perch.

Lake Namakagon (including its sub lakes Garden, Spring, Jackson) has, for generations, been the four season home for anglers seeking the thrill of trophy musky, walleye, northern, bass and crappie fishing amidst the splendor of nature, in the heart of the Chequamegon National Forest! Lake Namakagon reaches a maximum depth of 52 feet with an average depth of 17 feet. There are over 40 miles of shoreline, with many coves and bays. Lake Namakagon is unparalleled fishing because of its great structure that includes many rock and weed beds, drop offs and sand bars.


Enjoy the fall colors during one of several different hunting seasons including deer archery, deer firearm, small game and waterfowl.
