Big Roche-A-Cri Lake WI

Big Roche-A-Cri Lake is formed by a small hydroelectric dam on Big Roche-A-Cri Creek located in Preston Township, Adams County, Central Wisconsin under State Highway 13 between Wisconsin Rapids and Adams – Friendship.  East of the Lake, the creek is a trout stream and to the west it also forms Arkdale Lake then runs past Crystal Brook Woods and finally joins the Wisconsin River system at Castle Rock Lake. This 200 acre ski able lake has an average 9 ft deep with a max depth of 20 ft.
 

Primarily it's a recreational lake used for fishing, boating, jet skiing and water skiing.  Please check the WI DNR or signage for both fishing restrictions and wake rules which are currently no wake after 6:00 pm.  You can find the most common Wisconsin fish in the lake including northern pike, largemouth bass, blue gills, crappies and other types of panfish. Most of the 6.7 miles of shoreline real estate around the lake has been fully developed into waterfront building sites for getaway cabins, full time residential homes, mobile homes and campers.  State hwy 13 splits the lake in two with the smaller east side being shallow & weedy with the larger West side, much deeper and it’s less weedy toward the dam and some of the nicer homes.  The contour of the bottom of the lake is made up of the old creek bed, some rock but mostly sand and silt that the creek brings in.  The Lake association has the weeds harvested throughout the summer months. 

There are two primary boat launches on the lake for small to mid size fishing, ski and pontoon boats.  One is next to the hyrdo dam and the other right next to hwy 13 just south of the Bar & Grill.
