What lakes in Wisconsin do you consider to be overrated/never live up to the hype?
Most Overrated Lakes in Wisconsin
Lake Geneva. Overrated or just hard as nails? Hard to get onto. Lots of boat traffic in summer. Deep and clear requiring anglers to fish deep. Tough to fish unless you know it intimately or hire a guide. Guys that know the lake do pretty well (but I am not one of them.......)
Pike Lake in Washington County. That lake gets tons of pressure, especially in the winter. Not many big ones in there of any species.
Castle Rock Flowage... Boat traffic is horrible in the summer and ice fishing it gets pounded... I have a place nearby it took me Six years to catch fish consistently.. It can be good but tons of small walleye.. If you like a challenge give it a try...
Chippewa Flowage, used to be legendary for the Musky and walleye fishing. Has fallen drastically in the last 15-20 years. Alot of anglers now concentrate on Crappie.
Fox Lake. I recommend that no one go fish there. None to be had.
