Trip Summary

It’s mid October 2016 and the local municipal lakes are being replenished/stocked with Rainbow trout. Rice Lake is in my backyard and it’s a beautiful place to take the family and teach kids how to fish. On this trip I caught 3 Rainbow’s in a very short period of time. You can keep 2 Rainbow trout per fisherman per day on Rice Lake. These fish are very easy to catch, so check out my setup below (and the video).
