Higgins Lake is a large recreational and fishing lake in Roscommon County, in the U.S. state of Michigan. The 9,900 acre (40 km˛) lake is known for its deep, clear waters and is the 10th largest in Michigan with a shoreline of 21 miles (34 km).
Ice fishing continues. The lake is snow covered and there is also some slush. Lake trout have been caught on the north end by those using tip-ups with minnows or jigging Swedish pimples and sand kickers in 80 to 120 feet of water. Whitefish were caught along the flats on the north end. For perch, try the ridge along the Sunken Island or 20 to 40 feet of water around Treasure Island. Smelt anglers can be found in 40 feet of water off the west launch. While some are doing well others are only taking a few.
