The city of Hayward is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the Northwoods and all of Wisconsin as a whole. The population of Hayward’s year round residents is 2,318 with this number increasing during the summer months.
The Hayward area is known around the country for it’s spectacular fishing, hence why it’s the home of the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. There are tons of different lakes to fish in the area, but some of the more well known ones are Lac Courte Oreilles, Grindstone Lake, Spider Lake, and Windigo Lake. The Hayward area is also home to the Chippewa Flowage, a chain of many different lakes that are known for pulling trophy sized Northern Pike and Muskellunge. There are tons of guides to pick from around Hayward, so it won’t be hard to get on the water and chase those trophy fish.
The Fresh Water Hall of Fame is the easiest attraction to spot in Hayward because of the giant 140+ foot sculpture of a Musky. This museum was created for the 50 million anglers across the country who enjoy fishing for sport. The giant Musky has been named a “Shrine to Anglers” and provides an incredible view of Hayward and the surrounding lakes. In the museum itself you’ll find over 50,000 fishing artifacts from tackle to pictures. There’s also 300 mounted fish and about 1000 vintage motors on display. The museum offers membership programs where you can get free admission for supporting the museum.
