There are a lot of variables to control in the lake of the size and shallowness. The fishery is certainly in great shape . With everyone's help I hope it can continue.

I am reporting an unfortunate incident on Dec 26, yesterday at the fishing camp (I believe that's the name of the boat launch, located on the north east side of the lake). I left a DeWalt 14.4 drill behind in the grass near the handicapped parking lot around 1:30 or so pm. There is a reward offered for the return of the drill. God bless and Merry Christmas. My number to call is 920-979-8939. Thank you.

If there is anyone who call themselves a Fisherman, and can't catch fish in Beaver Dam, man, do you ever need fishing lesson. I have been fishing BD lake for over 12 years about 3 or four times a month. Let me tell you, I have never been here without catching very nice size of all species.
- William Smith from Milwaukee
it was a tough day fishing. 5-4. fished from 9 til 1:30 and didnt catch anything, water was a little cool 55 to 58 degrees.hopefully with warmer weather coming it will pick up the action

This lake is nasty-always algae blooms.So shallow its like a kiddie pool.Very dangerous when the wind kicks in.Smells like a toilet!!!!!!

Great crappie lake with good spring action.Also big bluegill that are underfished.
- lisa buchholz from beaver dam, Wisconsin
Better i(safer) in winter than summer. Last few years have seen increased algae blooms and water turbidity. This lake can kill when the wind whips up from the SE, lost four guys a couple summers ago, so use extreme caution. Walleyes now have an 18inch minimum. But with all that, there are fish, picked up a 38" musky last year while flyrodding for crappies. Musky are starting to become more common, heard of 5 or 6 last summer.

great catfish and bullhead lake.
- Aaron Chapman from Watertown, Wisconsin
one of the best walleye lakes in the state underfished and 20 fish days are common.
- louis julian from beaver dam, Wisconsin
Tough lake to fish, as it is just huge, and the fish tend to roam a lot. While it may be hard to find fish, it is generally well worth it when you do. Great populations of crappies, walleyes, and the up-and-coming yellow bass and catfish. Some bluegills, and perch thrown into the mix, and a supposedly steadily increasing pike fishery as well. Plenty of carp and bullheads though...we should do something about them. Good lake.
- Justin N from Greenfield, Wisconsin
Good lake with nice numbers of crappie and walleye. Lots of bullhead and carp though. Also can be weed choked in areas at times. Overall though good lake, even better through the ice.
- Micah Schroeder from Watertown, Wisconsin
Nice big lake. Lots of friendly folks around. Caught a couple of walleyes. Most people were searching for crappie. Dodge County and Beaver Dam should be proud of the first rate boat ramps and areas around them.
- Edward Ruppert from Juneau, Wisconsin
One of my favorite winter lakes. Lots of action on walleyes...mostly 12-14". But if it's action you want, you can count on it here all winter. The bite is mostly from dusk into the evening. Plenty of baitshops, Bills has everything you could ever dream of for ice fishin, and Quik Trip on Biz.151 has live bait 24/7.
- Craig Devenport from West Bend, Wisconsin
I give it a 4 because the lake is very productive, but most of the walleyes are in the 14" area.
- Jon Eilbes from Mayvile, Wisconsin
Beaver dam Lake is a wonderful lake. Many huge crappies and walleyes. Bluegills and Perch are big and tasty. Too many Carp, large population of bullheads, and population of Dogfish detract from the lake.Bass though are found everywhere and are usually around 15 inches. Great lake for kids beginning to fish.
- Justin Jones from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Best hit in early spring as water clarity turns too green.
