Welcome to Lake DuBay! Lake DuBay straddles Portage and Marathon Counties. It is a part of the Wisconsin River formed by the Lake DuBay Dam that was built in 1943. The Dam is managed by Consolidated Water Power Company or CWPCo. During the construction of the dam, remnants of an old trapper’s cabin belonging to John Baptiste DuBay was found. Mr. DuBay was one of the first white settlers in the area who ran a small trading post in the 1840’s. If you haven’t figured it out, that is where Lake DuBay’s name originated.
