Rice Lake

1 post in this topic

I am taking one of my youngin cousins out tonight fishing to see if we can find some sunnies or crappies. I recently got a new GPS with a lake chip in it but unfortuantely it does not have every lake in the area (hardly any of the tiny lakes that I normally fish) and wanted to give it a try. Rice lake is one of the few smaller lakes that are on it and figured I would give the lake a try.

Has anybody been out their lately? Can anybody give me an pointers on emerging vegetation or dark shallow bottoms that the crappies or sunnies may have been moving into already? I do not need anything exact, just a reference to direction. Thanks much.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
