Swimming on Big Blake Lake is wonderful. Swim either from shore or from the dock.


Fishing 

Big Blake Lake is a fantastic fishing lake! There's great fishing right off the docks, along with many favorite spots around the lake. Large musky, northerns, large and smallmouth bass, panfish, walleye, and more are found in the lake.


Please note- Big Blake Lake seems to be a favorite among the DNR. Please only fish with a fishing license, and be certain when boating to follow all of the DNR boating laws. http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/boat
