Hey a question or two about this lake? Ihave heard that this is a good northern pike lake. I like to fly fish pike in shallow water in the fall. Was wondering if this is a good lake for pike ? I also heard that this lake had weeded up pretty thick this summer, have the weeds thinned out much yet this fall? Apprieciate any info thanx much Forrest

You heard right, there's a ton of Pike In Rice Lake. About the only spot to fish from shore is around the damm. Yes it weeds up in the summer but it should be OK for what your doing now.

It's a ways away yet, but it's also good in the winter. I haven't hooked any big ones yet though.

I've been known to chase after a Pike or two on Rice lake. The last time I was up there about 3 weeks ago the water level was a little low. The weeds did seem to be thinning out.

There really isn't much fish-able shoreline with access by foot other then the dam as mentioned earlier.

Thanx for the info. Will not be shore fishing but will have a boat or a canoe. Was going to try around the island at the boat landing was wondering if this is a good spot? It is such a big lake and sort of featureless on the map that it is hard to tell where to start. Thanx arain Forrest

Forrest,

I have some ideas that I can show you on a map. I'm guessing you are in the Duluth area. I'll try and keep an eye on the forum the next few days while I'm off work and maybe we'll be able to meet-up and go over some info.

Forrest,

Sorry I missed your post. We'll have to try again. I'm not sure what my plans are for today or tomorrow at this point.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
