Lake Owen (Cable, Wisconsin)

This 1,323 acre lake is one of the premier lakes of Bayfield County and NW Wisconsin.  It has a shoreline of 24 miles, a maximum depth of 95 feet, and a mean depth of 27 feet.  In it, you’ll find northerns, walleyes, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and panfish.  Secchi disk readings are around 26 feet.


Although fishing can be good, on summer weekends anglers are wise to get out early and get off the water by later in the morning.  The lake has two campgrounds, two resorts, and a number of public landings.  It’s popular with boaters, water-skiers, and jet ski enthusiasts.

If you’re looking for that sort of experience, then Lake Owen might be the spot for you.  Be aware, however, that most homes and cabins tend to be in the upper price ranges.

The south end of the lake is near Cable, where you’ll find restaurants, shopping, and a small airfield.  Numerous golf courses are nearby.

Note: If you find this lake interesting, you might also want to consider Lake Namekagon.
