Long Lake in Washburn County, Wisconsin is a picturesque 3,300 acre, 19 mile long lake reaching depths of over 70 feet. The clear, spring-fed water, cool deep bays, gravel bars, pristine setting, and miles of undeveloped shoreline make a productive year-round fishery for walleye as well as large and small mouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and northern pike.
