Watershed - Red Cedar Lake (LC11)
Red Cedar Lake Watershed

Details

The Red Cedar Lake Watershed includes the headwater area of the Red Cedar River. It covers the adjoining corners of Barron, Rusk, Sawyer, and Washburn counties. A small portion of the Lac Courte Oreilles Indian Reservation lies within the Red Cedar Lake Watershed north and west of Lake Chetac. Much of this watershed is forested, with county forest land a large component of the watershed. The north central portion of the watershed consists of glacial pitted outwash and contains numerous small to large lakes. Lake Chetac and Birch Lake are located in this area. The area is mostly forested, but some agricultural land exists northwest and southeast of Birch Lake. The southeastern part of the watershed is in the rocky, hllly area known as the Blue Hills. The area consists of glacial end moraines and ground moraine. It is underlain by quartzite bedrock and is steep-sloped and forested. There are few lakes present in this area. The western portion of the watershed consists of end moraines and also contains a substantial number of lakes, the largest of which are Red Cedar, Hemlock, and Balsam. Most of the area is forested, though significant agricultural areas exist northeast and east of Red Cedar Lake, and southeast of Hemlock Lake.

Ecological Landscapes for Red Cedar Lake Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Red Cedar Lake Watershed lies in two ecological landscapes: the North Central Forest and the Forest Transition. The North Central Forest Ecological Landscape occupies much of the northern third of Wisconsin. Its landforms are characterized by end and ground moraines with some pitted outwash and bedrock controlled areas. Kettle depressions and steep ridges are found in the northern portion. Two prominent areas in this Ecological Landscape are the Penokee-Gogebic Iron Range in the north extending into Michigan, and Timm's Hill, the highest point in Wisconsin (1,951 feet) in the south. Soils consist of sandy loam, sand, and silts. The vegetation is mainly forest, with many wetlands and some agriculture, though the growing season is not as favorable as it is in southern Wisconsin. Lake Superior greatly influences the northern portion of the Ecological Landscape especially during the winter season, producing greater snowfall than in most areas in Wisconsin. The historic vegetation was primarily hemlock-hardwood forest dominated by hemlock, sugar maple, and yellow birch. There were some smaller areas of white and red pine forest scattered throughout the Ecological Landscape, and individual white pines trees were a component of the hemlock-hardwood forest. Harvesting hemlock to support the tanneries was common at the turn of the century, and the species soon became a minor component of forests due to over-harvesting and lack of regeneration. Currently, forests cover approximately 80% of this Ecological Landscape. The northern hardwood forest is dominant, made up of sugar maple, basswood, and red maple, and also including some scattered hemlock and white pine pockets within stands. The aspen-birch forest type group is also relatively abundant, followed by spruce-fir. A variety of wetland community types also are present, both forested and non-forested. The Forest Transition Ecological Landscape lies along the northern border of Wisconsin's Tension Zone, through the central and western part of the state, and supports both northern forests and agricultural areas. The central portion of the Forest Transition lies primarily on a glacial till plain deposited by glaciation between 25,000 and 790,000 years ago. The eastern and western portions are on moraines of the Wisconsin glaciation. The growing season in this part of the state is long enough that agriculture is viable, although climatic conditions are not as favorable as in southern Wisconsin. Soils are diverse, ranging from sandy loam to loam or shallow silt loam, and from poorly drained to well drained. The historic vegetation of the Forest Transition was primarily northern hardwood forest. These northern hardwoods were dominated by sugar maple and hemlock, and contained some yellow birch, red pine and white pine. Currently, over 60% of this Ecological Landscape is non-forested. Forested areas consist primarily of northern hardwoods and aspen, with smaller amounts of oak and lowland hardwoods. The eastern portion of the Ecological Landscape differs from the rest of the area in that it remains primarily forested, and includes some ecologically significant areas. Throughout the Ecological Landscape, small areas of conifer swamp are found near the headwaters of streams, and associated with lakes in kettle depressions on moraines. Ground flora show characteristics of both northern and southern Wisconsin, as this Ecological Landscape lies along the Tension Zone.

Wildlife and Habitat

The threatened fish species greater redhorse and ozark minnow, and the Wisconsin special concern species weed shiner, least darter, lake herring and pugnose shiner, have been found in the lakes and streams of this watershed. These species require various habitats from weedy shores to gravel, sand or mud bottoms. All need clear water. Most of the streams in ths watershed are only partly meeting their fishery potential due to beaver activity. Beaver impoundments increase the total surface area of the stream, increase temperatures, decrease dissolved oxygen levels, and can result in a silt-covered streambed in the impounded area. In some streams, the limitations on fish habitat and movement are severe. Forest management practices in riparian zones can affect the degree of stream habitat impairment due to beaver activity. Clear cutting encourages aspen, which serve as a food source for beaver. It enhances beaver habitat when aspen are readily available near streams. Forestry management could be used to discourage aspen growth in riparian zones of trout streams affected by beaver. The appropriate riparian management zone needs to be determined and may vary with terrain, such as where banks are steep or hilly and beaver will travel a lesser distance to obtain trees than in flat marshy areas.

Red Cedar Lake WatershedWatershed History Note

The Tagalong Golf Course can be found along the shores of the Red Cedar Lake in Barron County. Tagalong was originally built as a private golf course for Frank D. Stout. Construction on the course began about 1916 and the course was first played on around 1919. Frank Stout was said to have been the fifth wealthiest man in Chicago at the time. He was the son of Henry Stout, who was part owner of Knapp Stout, Co. of Menomonie, at one time the world’s largest lumber company. Frank’s brother, James, was a United States Senator and started what is known today as the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie. Stout himself was the president of two railroads and a bank, as well as a hotel owner. For summer vacations he built an Adirondack-style family lodge on an island in Red Cedar Lake, which today is available to the public. The course itself was modeled after the famous St. Andrews course in Scotland. Fourteen miles of pipe were used to irrigate the greens and fairways. As a gala to commemorate the opening of the course in 1925, Stout arranged to have an exhibition round featuring the US Open Champion and the British Open Champion. Six buildings were originally built at Tagalong, including the main clubhouse which is a gem of the old Stonemason's art. The Gothic Arches with their pastel colors of cut stone are topped by curving thatched roofs. The Pumphouse, which is situated on the shore of Red Cedar Lake, was built to house the large pumps used to water the entire grounds. This building was also used for a waiting station as the only way to enter the estate was by water. It is believed that the golf course is called Tagalong because it was the custom in the family that, whenever anything new was acquired or built and needed to be named, Mr. Stout would put up a gold piece as a prize. Mrs. Stout put the name "Tagalong" into the hat and won the gold piece. She suggested "Tagalong" because Mr. Stout always complained that the children wanted to "tag along" every time he went to the golf course.
