Whether it’s your 1st time fishing the Chippewa Flowage or you just want a few helpful tips, we highly recommend that you get a professional guide. After you’ve picked up on a few tips, and learned the how’s and why’s of picking out fishing spots, set out on your own Chippewa Flowage Fishing trip…. Now you won’t be guessing “where do I start?” Treelands “The Original”, Timber Kove and the Treeland Farm RV Resort are located in the North Central part of the Chippewa Flowage, centered around Musky Bay.

Lakes: Most Hayward Area Lakes including the Chippewa Flowage, Round Lake, Lost Land Lake, Teal Lake, Sand Lake, LCO and NElson Lake.

Specializing in Walleye: I fish several lakes in the Hayward Area. I have had great success on Dark Water Lakes as well as Clear Lakes. Fishing techniques depend on lake & time of year. Specializing on the Chippewa Flowage, Nelson Lake and Big Round. I catch walleye when others are not. My spots are your spots! Be sure to bring your GPS!

The Hayward Area Lakes are benefiting from extensive stocking and providing good numbers and trophy fish. It’s not uncommon to finish a day with a nice limit of walleye ready for the frying pan.
