Cast a line in Rusk County

Rivers and streams add another 140 miles of water for anglers and boaters to enjoy. Musky, walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, bluegill, yellow perch, crappie, northern pike, catfish and sturgeon can be found in Rusk County. During the winter, the county offers first-class ice fishing opportunities.
