Willow Flowage Scenic Waters Area
Fishing

The Willow Flowage is a 4217 acre lake located in Oneida County. It has a maximum depth of 30 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from public boat landings. Fish include Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye. The lake's water clarity is low.

Six DNR-managed boat landings on the Willow provide access for motor boats, canoes, and kayaks. The two boat landings on the east side of the property near the dam are the most reliable during periods of low water. Parking areas near the dam are paved and offer toilet facilities to visitors. The four landings on the west side of the property are more rustic and offer unpaved landings and parking areas.

Fish refuges

Two seasonal fish refuges, located at Cedar Falls on the north end and Willow Rapids to the west, protect spawning walleye and musky. Angling is prohibited from mid-April to mid-May in these posted areas.
