Fishing Adventure

Sparta’s multi-species freshwater fishing starts with the great variety of water, from the small Perch Lake with the Dam right below, from scenic trout streams, and pan fishing in the La Crosse River. Lake Neshonoc is a short 15-minute drive away, and the mighty Mississippi River is only 25 minutes away. There are many opportunities in the area for large and smallmouth bass, trout, and panfish!

Fishing in Fort McCoy requires an additional permit, find more information here.
