Our area of Northwest Wisconsin is home to a great vareity of wildlife. Roaming the woods here you will find deer, fox, squirrels, bears, wolves and much more. Swimming in the waters of the Eau Claire Lakes are Walleye, Pike, Muskie, Large and Smallmouth Bass and all species of panfish. In the skies above you'll see a variety of ducks, geese, loons, eagles and more.

Fishing the area lakes can be challenging with the extremely clear waters. This also makes for great photo opportunities. This summer, noted underwater photographer Eric Engbretson is planning to visit Bony Lake to photograph the new fish habitat and all that he can find swimming there.
