Renowned for excellent walleye fishing, Lake Winnebago is considered by many to be Wisconsin's premier fishery. There are 88 miles of shoreline surrounding this 135,000-acre (215 sq miles) lake in the southeastern part of the state, at Fon Du Lac, WI. Twenty boat landings and a half dozen marinas serve the boating public. For anglers who prefer to fish from the bank, there are numerous places to access the shoreline at parks, boat launch ramps, and along some of the roads which contour the shoreline. Ice fishing, when the ice is safe, is popular with local anglers. Whether fishing through the ice, bank fishing or fishing from a boat, the lake is loaded with a wide variety of fish species to catch. Walleye, crappie, bass, perch, muskie, northern pike, bluegill and monster sturgeon all reside here. Several marinas, campgrounds, restaurants, tackle stores and lodging are all available at, or nearby, the lake.
