The 109,111,113Rh nuclei have been produced as fission fragments in the fusion reaction $\chem{^{18}O+{}^{208}Pb}$ at 85 MeV. Their level schemes have been built from gamma-rays detected using the Euroball IV array. High-spin states of the neutron-rich 111,113Rh nuclei have been identified for the first time. Several rotational bands with the odd proton occupying the $\pi g_{9/2}$, $\pi p_{1/2}$ and $\pi(g_{7/2}/d_{5/2}$) sub-shells have been observed. A band of low-energy transitions has been identified at excitation energy around 2 MeV in 109,111Rh, which can be interpreted in terms of three-quasiparticle excitation, $\pi g_{9/2}~\nu h_{11/2}~\nu g_{7/2}/d_{5/2}$. In addition another structure built on states located at low excitation energy (608 keV in 111Rh, 570 keV in 113Rh) points out that, as already observed in the lighter isotopes 107,109Rh, triaxial deformation plays a role in the neutron-rich Rh isotopes well beyond the mid-shell.
