Like its neighbour to the west, Rosseau’s water is clear, deep (250’+) and fairly low in nutrient content. Nevertheless there are some shallower weedy areas found mostly in channels and in the back end of numerous bays that surround the lake.
  • These are good pike spots in the spring or for largemouth bass
  • the Skeleton and Rosseau Rivers enter the lake on the northeast side of the lake
  • there are a number of good public boat launching sites including ones at the village of Rosseau and at the head of Skeleton Bay
  • Lake Rosseau is located within the boundaries of Fisheries Management Zone 15
