Fishing On Rice Lake

Rice Lake is one of Ontario's most productive fisheries. We are in a prime fishing location just off the islands and immediately opposite the mouth of the Otonabee River. We offer Boat & motor rental, private docking, licenses, bait, fish cleaning and freezing facilities.

A very fertile shallow lake, Rice Lake is home to many species of fish. You will always have fun catching the various fish species that populate the lake including, Bass, Walleye, Muskie and Pan Fish (Blue Gill, Perch, Crappie, Sunfish, Catfish). When it comes to fishing, Rice Lake is the place to be.

Ice Fishing on Rice Lake – Yes, you heard right! Changes to Zone 17 Fishing Regulations means that as of January 1, 2010, Yellow Perch, Crappie and Sunfish can be fished year-round.

Fishing Lake Ontario (Zone 20) - Lake Ontario is a 15 minute drive from Plank Road Cottages and it is the 14th largest lake in the world. The lake's main fish species include chinook salmon, coho salmon, rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye and carp. Among the many species present, the chinook or pacific salmon are the kings in these waters, many topping the scales at well over 30 pounds.
