Experience the Best Fishing Season at Rice Lake, Ontario - 2024!

Updated: May 21

The fishing conditions at Sandy Shore Cottages Luxury Resort on Rice Lake, Ontario, have never been better! Our first guests of the season have already caught stunning species right in front of the resort, and even a pike was hooked off the dock:

Why is fishing so exciting this season? Is it the people or the fish? We believe it's the fish! This season, the fish population seems to have rejuvenated after a relatively slow year. Last year, there were significantly fewer fishermen, possibly because many people chose to travel abroad after a prolonged period of staying local. This reduction in fishing pressure may have allowed the fish population to thrive, resulting in an abundant and exciting fishing season.

Predicting how long this remarkable fishing will last is difficult. It could be just a spring phenomenon or continue throughout the entire season. However, one thing is certain: the current fishing on Rice Lake is unparalleled! If you catch Bass to release it it is probably the best time to come.

But it is not a season yet😁

As usual, Rice Lake is home to an impressive number of bass, including some unusually large ones. Although the bass season has not officially started, now is an excellent time to visit if you enjoy catch-and-release fishing. The lake is teeming with bass, providing an ideal opportunity for anglers to engage in their favorite sport while contributing to sustainable fishing practices.
