Here’s what Bob Izumi had to say about staying at Elmhirst’s and fishing on Rice Lake:

“For more than thirty years I’ve done a lot of travelling around the world taping the Real Fishing tv series. Recently we had a wonderful stay at Elmhirst Resort. Even though I have fished Rice Lake numerous times since the 80’s it was my first time staying at the resort. Rice has always been a consistently good multi-specie fishery. In the day and a half of fishing we landed smallmouth/largemouth bass, a walleye and even a bonus musky! As good as the fishing was the accommodations and food were even better! Elmhirst exceeded all of our expectations and we can’t wait to go back.”
