Chequamegon Bay offers world-class smallmouth bass fishing as well as great near-shore and deep-water fishing. Many anglers have put a bend in their fishing rods during the late-March steelhead run in the South Shore’s rivers.
Some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the entire state are located in Ashland County. Copper Falls State Park near Mellen features three scenic waterfalls on the Tyler Forks and Bad rivers. Hikers will be enthralled by the breathtaking beauty of Morgan Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Wisconsin.
In addition to exceptional fishing and hiking opportunities, the Chequamegon Bay region is among the best birding destinations in the Midwest, with a wide variety of habitats home to nearly 300 species. Abundant public lands and extraordinary natural beauty provide visitors with unparalleled nature-watching opportunities in this exceptional area of northern Wisconsin. Casual and avid bird watchers alike as well as nature lovers will be drawn to Ashland and the south shore of Lake Superior in May for the annual Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Festival. In 2021 we will be doing a “Repurposed” Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Event. Due to Covid the usual event will not take place this year but we have put together some Self-Guided Birding & Nature Walks that you can do on your on.
