Lake Information

Chetek Lakes
Chetek Chain Of Lakes

     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.
     The 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.
