  William J. Poupart, Sr. Fish Hatchery & Trout Pond 

The Lac du Flambeau Fish Hatchery was established in 1936. It is located on Pokegema Lake on Highway 47. The emphasis is on raising walleye and musky to stock in reservation lakes that are open for public fishing. Both lake and well water is used to control temperatures for year round production.

Fish eggs are harvested from local lakes and hatched in incubators. Some of the fry hatched are put back into area lakes and some are raised to fingerling size and then released. The fish culture program raises all fish necessary for stocking reservation waters. Since 1960 the hatchery has raised nearly 600 million walleye fry, three million walleye fingerlings, two and a half million muskellunge fry and just over one hundred and twenty-five thousand muskellunge fingerlings.

The original structure was recently replaced with a new state-of-the-art facility that doubles fish production.

In the summer months you can fish in the trout pond even without a fishing license. It is fun for the whole family and your fish are bagged while you wait.

Group tours can be arranged by calling ahead for an appointment at (715) 588-2170.


WA-SWA-GONING INDIAN VILLAGE                                        715-588-3560
(the place where they spear fish by torchlight)

Walk a rustic trail lined with flora and fauna, foxfire, and a forest of diverse trees as you listen to the sounds of the various birds, from the loon to the eagle, greeting you.

Built on 20 acres along the shore of beautiful Moving Cloud Lake on the Lac du Flambeau Indian Reservation, Was-Swa-Goning was the Ojibwe name of our whole area. The French name of our whole area. The French fur traders called it Lac du Flambeau (Lake of Fire) when they saw the torches on the lakes as the Ojibwe speared fish at night.

A unique learning experience for the entire family. The only village of its kind in the Northwoods.

Tours are available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Tuesday through Saturday, mid-May through the end of September.
