Discover your perfect spot for fishing, boating, and swimming on the waterways of Taylor County. Hundreds of lakes and flowages, 21 of which have public-access boat launches, dot the landscape as vital life-forces of the forest and the community. The largest bodies of water in Taylor county (by surface area) are Chequamegon Waters, Mondeaux Flowage, Rib Lake, and North Spirit Lake.

Water quality is a cutting-edge priority to the many management groups in the area. These volunteer-led groups and clubs work to preserve and enrich Taylor County’s watershed to keep fish populations, waterfront ecology, and water quality at their peak. Rib Lake Fish & Game Association, Taylor County Sportsman’s Club, and many individual lake associations work on behalf of all who seek to enjoy this natural legacy.
