Chetek Chain Of
The Six Lakes of the chain ( Chetek, Prairie, Pokegama, Ojaski, Moose Ear, and
Ten Mile ) are fed on the north by Rice Creek which originates from a tag
alder and tamarack swamp and flows into Prairie Lake, and by German and Pokegama
creeks which combine to flow into Ojaski lake. Moose Ear Creek begins as a rock
bottomed stream in the Blue Hills and flows southwest into Moose Ear Lake. In
its upper part it is a brook and brown trout stream. Ten Mile and Beaver Creek
are warm water streams which flow into Ten Mile Lake. The extensive marshland
surrounding these two streams provide excellent habitat for beaver, muskrat and
nesting and migratory waterfowl.
entire chain of lakes are soft-water drainage lakes with their water
level held by the dam located between Lake Chetek and the Chetek River.
The fish population in the lakes include northern pike,
walleye, large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, perch, bullhead,
and rock bass.
These fertile lakes have always been noted for their abundant
supply of panfish and excellent catches of northern pike and bass.
