Rice Lake Report???????

4 posts in this topic

Me and my bro are gonna hit Rice on Friday for some Walleye's. We've never fished the lake before so were curious to where a guy could find a few. Not lookin for gps coordinates but (deep weed lines , shallow flats, ect) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Straight off of the point on the west side. It runs from 6 ft to 25 ft. I have never caught a walleye, or anything for that matter, on the inside turn that you will see a lot of houses on. I sit all by my lonesome on the point in about 14ft and manage to do well. Haven't been out there yet this year but will be out in the next couple of weeks. Set a tip-up in shallow and you'll get a few slimers...good luck.

Fish the breakline and move up on the shallow flat during primetime. If you pick the right spot you should have action. Always seems to be a good shallow bite on Rice.

I've had luck off the south access in past year's early ice, though I got skunked a couple weekends ago. Didn't quite get as deep as I would have liked, the 5-7 inches of good ice that is a couple hundred yards out got pretty scary looking (under 5-6 inches total with most of it being cloudy) once I got above 20 feet of water.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
