Lac Courte Oreilles is one of northwestern Wisconsin’s premier lakes. At 5.039 acres (plus 240 acres for the connected Little LCO), it’s also one of the biggest. This deep, clear-water lake has a shoreline of 25.4 miles, a maximum depth of 90 feet, and a mean depth of 33.7 feet. Its littoral bottom is 28% sand, 57% gravel, 11.5% muck, and 3.5% rubble.
According to the DNR, you can expect to encounter muskellunge, northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, perch, bluegills, crappies, and even a few trout. LCO is famous for trophy muskies in the 50″ and over class.
LCO is also a popular lake for boating and waterskiing. It’s one of the few lakes in northern Wisconsin that is large enough for sailing; the LCO sailing club holds regular races and regattas throughout the summer.
That makes this lake especially desireable; all else equal, you may pay a bit more here for a lake home or cabin. But if you’re looking for a lake that’s large, deep, and cold, then it just may be worth it.
