Lake Menomin is a reservoir on the Red Cedar River, in Dunn County, Wisconsin, USA.[2]

Along the lake's western and southern shores lies the city of Menomonie, the central business district of which is located at the far southern end of the lake, near the dam which forms it. There are multiple public parks, trails, beaches, and boat landings along the lake’s shoreline. Common fish found in lake Menomin include Panfish, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, and Walleye.[3] In late summer, blue-green algae blooms afflict the lake due to high phosphate levels from runoff.
