This 772-acre lake is located northwest of Minong, just southwest of the Kimball Lakes Chain and the Minong Flowage. Nancy Lake has a shoreline of 10.9 miles, a maximum depth of 39 feet, and a mean depth of 11 feet. Secchi disk readings are around 8 feet. In Nancy Lake, you’ll find muskies, northerns, walleyes, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and panfish.
Several trophy muskies have been caught here, including one 54-incher that was caught and released in 1997. Nancy Lake also yielded the winning entry in 2001’s Hayward Muskie Fest.
As you can see from this aerial, Nancy Lake has a meandering shoreline with lots of peninsulas and bays. Although it has a few deep holes, much of the lake is relatively shallow and weedy. Those areas, mainly in the lake’s southern half, are better for fishing, paddling, and pontooning than for jet skis and waterskiing. Adding to the southern half’s wild, up-north feeling, much of its shoreline consists of low-lying wetlands that remain undeveloped. The lake’s northern half, however, is deeper, more open, and more heavily developed.
Much of Nancy Lake’s shoreline is dotted with cabins and lake homes that are available in a range of sizes and prices. Because most of the buildable shoreline has already been developed, waterfront property come on the market more rarely.
