Rice Lake is well known to anglers from all over for its outstanding fishing. The kids will love shore fishing and are bound to have a blast catching sunfish, perch or even a bass! More experienced anglers can set their sites on the abundant muskie and walley poliferating the lake. Don't have your own boat? Rent one of ours!
Whatever your level experience, fishing on Rice Lake is always exciting!
