Lake Puckaway is a 9x2 mile shallow water lake which encompasses 5433 acres of water and is an excellent recreational lake, with activities including fishing, swimming, boating, and duck hunting. Puckaway is part of the Fox River chain, a river which starts around Portage, WI and empties into Green Bay of Lake Michigan. Lake Puckaway's maximum water depth is approximately nine feet and should accommodate essentially every boat with an outboard motor and many with inboard/outboard (especially in spring when the water is high). Lake Puckaway is also the home of the Wisconsin state record Northern Pike that was caught on August 06, 1952 weighing in at 38 lbs 0 ozs. Game fish in this lake include Walleye, Northern Pike, Large-mouth Bass, Bluegill, Crappie, and Perch.
