Fishing Facts


Centrally located in the northeast portion of the Manitowish Chain of Lakes, Fawn Lake offers excellent fishing with minimal traffic within our sheltered bay. All 10 Manitowish Chain of Lakes are accessible from our docks providing fishermen and water sports enthusiasts over 4000 acres of navigable water for their entertainment.

The smallest of the ten lakes on the navigable chain, Fawn Lake boasts a variety of fish and is a producer of some notable catches! Regardless of age or experience, if you’re out to land trophy Musky, Northern, Walleye or Bass ……or stocking up on Bluegill, Crappie & Perch for the family fish fry……You’re in the right spot!
