I have not got out there yet this year. However, in years past I have had some success early ice right off the weed edges. Lots of pike and tiger musky so if you jigging a shinny Angle eye etc. be prepared.

I live a few blocks from it. From everyone I talked to it used to be an awesome lake. About 4 or 5 years ago it took a turn and hasn't turned back on yet. You can still catch fish out of there, but not the numbers and size they used to have.

I fished Phalen a lot in the early 90's as well... Boy, did we catch big largemouth bass, pikes, and walleyes... We also caught some HUGE and I mean HUGE carps too..... Why nobody fishes it more? I do not know.. Perhaps nobody knows... There is a restriction on gas motors on the lake.... Every spring, people use to catch limits of crappies as well where the fishing Pier is by the bridge on that lake.... That lake sure isnt what it use to be anymore... You can still catch fish, but it's just not as easy as it was before, ya know?

I use to fish it a lot too, when I was a little kid. And there will be nights where 20-30 walleyes in one night was not uncommon, but the lake has changed. I think the lake started changing when it got more infested with eurasian milfoil. I think there is still good fish in Phalen but there patterns have just totally changed. Hey if you guys decide to go to Pahlen one day email me I will come tag along, hondavxr @ gmail. com

i live about three blocks from phalen and fish it quite a lot for walleyes spring/fall/winter. this year has been good as far as size for the walleyes, but usually most of the walleyes i catch in phalen are 11-12" or less. that being said i rarely get skunked when fishing for the eyes and there are also quite a few decent sized pike and muskies in this lake.

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
