The Lower Eagle River Chain of Lakes is comprised of ten lake basins located within the Wisconsin River Drainage Basin in Vilas and Oneida Counties, Wisconsin. The Lower Eagle River Chain of Lakes is comprised of Cranberry Lake, Catfish Lake, Voyageur Lake, Eagle Lake, Scattering Rice Lake, Otter Lake, Lynx Lake, Duck Lake, Yellow Birch Lake, and Watersmeet. Due to the size of the chain and the time needed for studies, the plans were proposed to be completed in blocks (phases) of two to three lakes per year, starting at the upstream-most end of the chain and working downstream.
