Scattering Rice Lake
|Clarity: 2m||Depth: 17 ft||Size: 263 Acres||Type: Drainage||Access: Public|
Scattering Rice Lake is a hidden gem on the Eagle River Chain of 28 lakes. Scattering Rice is just north of Eagle Lake through a short thoroughfare. The lake is 17‘ deep and 267 acres. The major features of the lake are that it is fed from the Deeerskin River. The Deerskin flows down from Deerskin Lake. The Deerskin River is navigable by powerboat to Rangeline Rd. There is a culvert there that is too small for boats. Rangeline Rd can be portaged by canoes and kayaks. The Deerskin River is a terrific river for quiet sports. Scattering Rice has a large island with a very nice sand bar on the north side (which most folks are unaware of). There is also a bog near the south shore of the lake. There are no restaurants or bars on the lake. There is a boat ramp that is close by at Eagle Lake Park which is one lake over.
