The St Croix Flowage in Gordon, Wisconsin

This post is in honor of this cabin I’ve just listed on the north shore of the Saint Croix Flowage, also known as the Gordon Flowage. At 1,913 acres, and with 29 miles of meandering shoreline, the Gordon Flowage is one of the largest, least developed lakes anywhere in northwestern Wisconsin. The Flowage is located near near Gordon, Wascott, and Solon Springs, and is just west of U.S. Highway 53. For your enjoyment, I’ve ended this post with some fresh photos taken at various points around the lake.

The Flowage has a maximum depth of 28 feet and a mean depth of 7 feet; much of it is relatively shallow.  Its water, however, is quite clear.  Secchi disk readings are generally around 8 feet.

The Flowage is a popular, year-round destination for anglers.  You’re most likely to catch sunfish, crappies, northern pike, and largemouth bass.  The Flowage also contains smaller numbers of muskies and smallmouth bass.

Most of the Flowage is relatively wild and undeveloped; if you’re stealthy enough, you’ll see abundant birds and wildlife.

Just minutes away, you’ll find dozens more rivers and lakes.  You’ll also be close to trails and abundant public land.  Just off US 53; 40 minutes from Superior or Spooner.

There aren’t a lot of sandy beaches on the Flowage, and it’s not great for waterskiing, jet skis, or high-speed boating.  It’s fine, though, for pontoons, fishing boats, and canoes or kayaks.  If you prefer eagles, loons, and otters to PWCs and water skis, then this is the lake for you.
