Have family property here since 69'. Excellent Panfish and Gamefish lake - never get skunked - many fish fry's. Wish they had stricter rules as people from other areas of WI come here to panfish and they harvest over limit. Much better fishing than shallow swamp neighbor beaver dam which has become a pool of green slime.

Took my 28 year old son out this past Saturday 9-29-18 at noon. It was cold and not many boats on the lake. First Island we pulled up on, I landed a 5 lb LMB. Three cast later, 2 lb LMB. THAT was it the rest of the day. The lake is still green slime from June. I guess the best time to fish FOX is on ICE or between April till early June. Still a good day all in all.

Went out today with my 16 year old son and my nephew. Didn't get out until noon, but got on crappies right away. Finished with 15 and a fisherman near by gave us 3 crappies he didn't want to clean. Awesome day, worth the trip!

Fox Lake is great! We get our limit every time for Crappie. (Only once we left with 16) They bite in the morning right before sunrise and after sunset. I don't know why everyone else is having problems, but crappies have been great this last 2 months for us. You just have to put in the time during the day and wait until the next bite.

Overfished,overrated and simply very inconsistent to be consider a good lake.Beaver dam right down the road is by far a better lake!
- Rick Zieman from Reedsburg
got some huge bluegills today, went home and cut em up, some of them had what they call black pepper parasite. this is the first time i had ever run into it, so i didn't know what it was, looked it up on the internet and they say it might get you sick, i wasn't hungry enough to find out, great fishing tho, lots of fish had a great day fishing! NOT ALL FISH ARE AFFECTED BY IT, LUCK OF THE CATCH!

- SHANNON STEPHENSON from BRADLEY, Illinois
I have only caught a couple pike and a walleye from here the biggest pike being 29 in long
- Tim Zebra from La Grange, Illinois
Good lake. Populations of big crappies, bluegills, and perch. Lots of walleyes, many are legal. LM Bass have taken off. The muskies and northerns are coming back with a vengeance. The water is the clearest I've ever seen. Weed growth is getting better every year(not too weedy). Carp pop. is down. This lake is definitely on the rise. Too many icefisherman in winter though.

- Jeff S from Fox Lake, Wisconsin
Fox Lake is an exellent walleye and crappie lake. I pulled out a couple 20+ inch walleye and limited out on crappies several times.caught most on the north side of Chief Kuneo Road. Best Walleye And crappie Lake in dodge County
- Jordan Redeker from Randolph, Wisconsin

- david f from milwakee, Wisconsin
Good walleye population
- Glenn Rogers from Horicon, Wisconsin
Fishing from shore is real bad, but if you have a boat go to the Cty. A bridge for good-size panfish.
- Alesha\Mason martinez from BD, Wisconsin
Just an overall great lake. Fishing is great since the drawdown. Carp are mostly gone now, but sadly so are the bullheads. Favorite place in the world to fish!!!
- Justin ???? from Fox Lake, Wisconsin
I lived on this lake about 4 years ago and left shortly after the lake was poisoned to kill the carp. Largemouth bass and small northern (snakes) easiest to catch. Large crappies and perch easy to catch in spring on north side of lake. Never caught a walleye over 18". Mucho carp and bullheads. Shoot carp with a bow on creek (north-west part of lake). Cribs hold some fish. Very flat muddy bottom. Stay away from stagnant water in summer.
- Muskyray - from Hartford, Wisconsin
This is a great lake. It contains tons of healthy bluegills, crappies, and nice walleyes and Pike and a sizable Muskie population. Fox Lake though has a carp problem that is diminishing but is still there, and an abundance of small crappies and a low amount of perch. Bullheads are also found in quantity but are fun to catch.
