Welcome to the Scattering Rice Lake Association Website!


Scattering Rice Lake is a 260 acre lake lying at the far eastern edge of the Lower Eagle River Chain. It is a unique body of water in that it features both an island and a river. The Deerskin River flows in from the north and supplies the lake with plenty of fresh water and oxygen. The river meanders through the Nicolet National Forest for over 15 miles and is ideal for caneoing or kayaking. It also boasts some of the best trout fishing in northern Wisconsin. The island is at the south end of the lake and is owned by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). It is a pristine island with sandy shores and a public picnic area. Scattering Rice Lake truly stands out from the crowd!scattering rice island


Scattering Rice Lake Association is unique in that its members included lake residents as well as those living on the Deerskin River. Regardless of where our members live, all have one thing in common. We care deeply about our lake and want to ensure that it remains beautiful with a healthy ecosystem. The most imminent problem has been controlling the spread of Eurasian Water Milfoil thathas invaded the lake! We are concerned about our ecosystem and have worked very hard to stop the spread of Eurasian Water Milfoil. See our Aquatic Invasives Species Treatment page to learn what we are doing to protect and preserve this body of water for generations to come!
