Rice Lake in Rice county

4 posts in this topic

Wondering if there is any action out on Rice Lake in Rice county or if anyone has even been out there. I heard there might be some northern biting in through the ice there. Thanks

It's a very shallow lake that froze out. There are a few nice fish in it but don't go expecting numbers and access is very difficult, maybe not even possible unless you have permission from one of the private property landowners.

I do have a pike show from one of the northerns that just kept coming back for more in the video sharing forum.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
