Lake Le Homme Dieu

LakeLe Homme Dieu is a 1,800-acre basin located on the northeast city limit of Alexandria. It is part of the Alexandria Chain of Lakes with navigable connections existing to Lake Carlos and Lake Geneva. Water quality is very good, and water transparency measurements average 10 feet during summer months. Because of its clear water and close proximity to Alexandria, the lake is popular with anglers and recreational boaters. Two well-maintained accesses are available to the public. Rotary Beach Access is located on the northwest shoreline off County Road 42. Krueger's Creek Access is located along the northeast shoreline. The City of Alexandria maintains a public swimming beach on the southeast shoreline.

Lake Le Homme Dieu offers diverse and quality fishing experiences. Largemouth bass continue to be abundant. Bass captured during the 2012 electrofishing survey averaged 11.3 inches in length. The largest caught during the survey measured 16.8 inches. Larger bass are commonly caught by tournament anglers. Northern pike gillnet catches averaged approximately 6.0 fish/net. Lower abundance is desirable to improve predator/prey balance and productivity. It is probable that the population sample under-represented numbers of larger pike. Walleye are stocked every year to supplement natural reproduction and increase abundance and fishing success. DNR stockings have been augmented with walleye fingerlings since 2007. These additional walleye were purchased and stocked by the Lake Le Homme Dieu Association and Viking Sportsmen, Inc. Gillnet catches during the 2012 survey averaged 8.6 walleyes/net. This catch rate was greater than that of the preceding survey.
