You voted, and the winner of best wildlife experience is our excellent fishing!
For fishing enthusiasts, you’ll enjoy our abundant waters as you reel in bass, musky, northern pike, bluegill, walleye and other pan fish. Prehistoric sturgeon swim the waters of the Yellow River, one of the more elusive catches. Ice fishing is a mainstay in Burnett County, where you’ll find lakes dotted with ice houses and tip-ups. Many of thelocals argue the fishing is even better in winter months.
Come find your trophy in Burnett County.
