Fishing in Eau Claire
The city of Eau Claire has a long-standing motto of “voici l’eau claire,” which translates to “here is clear water.” With a city motto like that, it’s not surprising to find that Eau Claire has many prime fishing locations. We have beautiful lakes, ponds and rivers surrounding the area that are sure to impress. Enjoy a relaxing canoe ride on Half Moon Lake, spend a day catching dinner on the Chippewa River or bundle up and spend a day on the ice during the winter.
If ice fishing is more your style, Eau Claire has no shortage of great frozen lakes to explore. Also, we are home to many annual tournaments and contests, including the annual Jig's Up Ice Fishing Tournament that is put on by University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire.
The fish are ready for you. What are you waiting for?
