I do think it is a very nice lake, I look forward to my weekend up there all year long, however I wouldn't want to pay the price of lake frontage and have it not be there half the year. I have been going up there for 30 plus years and can say the past few haven't been to bad as far as lake levels, but I remember as a kid going up there and standing on the peir which is usually in 6ft and not being able to cast to open water. And the bay we are in isn't even the worst, there are some I have seen that have grass growing in them from the following summer. The other thing to watch out for with buying lake property is vacant land. If there is nothing built on it yet there is probably a reason. I know of a few lots that have been for sale for years now and seem reasonably priced but you can't build on them cause they are to narrow. You have to be so many feet from the road and the lake so you can't do anything with them, just saying do your homework.

Djay64,

I've owned a cottage on the lake for several years now and have had friends on the lake for 15+ years. You do need to be choosy on where you buy. I believe 70-80% of the lake is ideal, but a few bays get weedy as well as lose water when on low years. The lake is a flowage and does drop the water down in December by 4 feet and raise it up in April by 4 feet. The lake also drops about a foot in early July for canoe races in the local rivers. I've owned property on several lakes in SE Wisconsin as well as two Lakes in the Tomahawk area. I can tell you that overall Nokomis has been awesome for myself and family. I also have college age kids. We intend to move full time to the lake as soon as my youngest daughter finishes high school. We love the lake.

Busy on Nokomis is nothing like busy on SE WI lakes. The 4th was fine for us I had no complaints at all about traffic.

If you want to know more or possibly meet for a beer or coffee message me through the site. We can soak a few lines off my pier and talk about the lake. I go up about 3 out of 4 weekends per month and would be happy to tell you more.

I would be very weary of any property on the lake...I am only up there opening weekend at my uncle's cabin but know the water levels vary greatly. His cabin is in a small bay on the south end of the lake. Most years at the opener the lake is full but I remember many years that the pier is 6 ft out of the water. Other years my uncle said the lake was 10 ft low till the week before opener then it filled the week before we were there, all weekend long thought that has to screw with the fish.

Great fishing lake!!! Don't know what you mean by keeping eaters out of lake? Traffic is not a problem on a huge lake like Nakomis. One thing I would consider is water level fluctuations. You want to make sure that you have water year round where you purchase properties. When the water levels get real low, some people no longer can access the main lake. I don't live on the lake. Just telling you what I know. There have been people on this site that said they came back 2 weeks later and their boat was on land. There are many good properties on this lake though as I have been searching area for a couple years now. Bass are hitting almost anything at the moment.

Fellow fisher-people...

I'm looking to purchase a cabin on Lake Nokomis. Can anyone please provide feedback on the overall quality of the lake?

What kinds of weeds are in the lake? Water quality? Are leeches in the lake? Any swimmers itch? I have kids in their 20's that like to water ski, jet ski, ... Does anyone keep the "eaters" out of the lake?

What kind of traffic does the lake get?

Any locations on the lake that would be better to purchase a cabin at?

I've fished for a long time and know that fisherman/women know the lakes better than anyone.

Any comments/suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
