Tomahawk Lake is situated in the northern part of Wisconsin, specifically in Oneida County. It is a renowned fishing destination that offers anglers an abundance of opportunities to catch various popular fish species. The lake's pristine waters and diverse structure make it an appealing spot for both recreational and serious anglers.

Smallmouth bass is one of the prized fish species in Tomahawk Lake. Anglers can target smallmouth bass by casting with artificial lures such as crankbaits, jigs, or soft plastics along rocky shorelines, submerged rock formations, or drop-offs. These feisty fighters provide thrilling action and are known for their aggressive strikes.

Largemouth bass can also be found in Tomahawk Lake, particularly in areas with submerged vegetation, fallen trees, or lily pads. Anglers often use topwater lures, spinnerbaits, or plastic worms to entice largemouth bass from their cover. Tomahawk Lake offers plenty of opportunities to hook into trophy-sized largemouth bass.

Muskie is another sought-after species in Tomahawk Lake. With its clear waters and ample forage base, the lake provides suitable habitat for these elusive predators. Anglers target muskie using large bucktails, jerkbaits, or live bait such as suckers or large shiners. The chance of hooking into a trophy muskie adds to the allure of fishing in Tomahawk Lake.

Walleye is a popular game fish in Tomahawk Lake. Anglers can locate walleye near structure, such as weed beds, rock piles, or drop-offs. Trolling with crankbaits or spinner rigs, jigging with minnows or leeches, or casting with jigs and plastics are effective techniques for targeting walleye.

Black crappie, northern pike, yellow perch, and bluegill are also prevalent in Tomahawk Lake. These panfish species offer enjoyable angling experiences for anglers of all skill levels. Fishing near submerged vegetation, docks, or using small jigs or live bait can lead to success in catching these popular panfish species.

Beaches, boat ramps and parking are open to the public. Campgrounds, RV hookups, rental boats, a marina, lodging, dining and supplies for camping and fishing are all close at hand. Canoes, kayaks and powerboats are common ways to enjoy the scenery and experience great fishing.
