Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum


Hayward is called the Musky Capital of the World as the record Muskellunge fish have been caught in the Hayward area.  The mounted record Muskies used to hang in a couple of the local bars.  In the 1960's, the idea of a Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame was started.  Funds collections started in the early 1970's and resulted in the building of the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum in Hayward.  The centerpiece of the museum if a half-city block long, four and one-half story high sculpture of a Musky.
Fishing Museum This is the Musky sculpture.  You climb a set of steps to get to the month of the Musky.

The walls inside hold memorabilia of fisherman of the past.
