Fish Lake Wildlife Area is a 14,000 acre property that is located about 5 miles south of Grantsburg off of Highway 48/87. Much like Crex Meadows, visitors can hunt, trap, view wildlife, and participate in other outdoor recreational activities on Fish

Lake. Also like Crex, Fish Lake has a 1,200 acre refuge that is a no-entry area for most of the year. However, this refuge opens September 1-November 30 for deer hunting during gun deer and muzzleloader seasons. Everywhere else on the property is open to recreational

activities without restriction. Wildlife viewing is the most common use of the Fish Lake property, especially in the fall for viewing thousands of Sandhill Cranes and other migrating birds. Many people gather near the Grettum refuge to get a close look at

this spectacular migration. View map here.
