- Rice Lake is known thoughtout North America for it’s Muskie fishing. The deeper waters on the south end of the lake are your best bet. Trolling is the best method. While 10-15 pound muskies are commonly caught, some fish in the 30 pound range are caught
- For spring walleye, check out the weed flats around Bewdley. Also the mouth of the Otonobee river has proven a good spot. Try jigs tipped with minnows or worms. Once summer hits, you’ll do best in the deeper channels on the south end of the lake.
- Largemouth bass can be found in those same Bewdley weed beds. Also off the mouth of the Otanabee near Cow Island. You could try going up the Otanabee and hitting the lilly pads near Bensfort Bridge.
- Smallmouth can be found in the deeper waters. The drop-off near Tick Island is a good spot. Crappie fishing is great in the spring. It is quite common to land 1 pound crappie.
- Rice lake is very shallow rarely reaching more than 25 ft. Weedbeds and mudflats are abundant. Panfish abound in these waters and where there are panfish, you’ll also find predatory fish, such as bass, walleye, and muskie.
