Typo lake traditional ice conditions

12 posts in this topic

This is the Typo that lays just north of Linwood lake in East Bethal/Wyoming.

I really am just looking to see if it is a lake with the history of people driving on it or if people leave trucks at the access so I know what to bring and what I should leave home. I'd hate to find out the hard way that people drive around certain parts (or not at all) of the lake because of traditionally unsafe ice conditions.

Nice call, I totally agree. I grew up around there and always considered Typo a pond; it's funny to see all the interest in it lately.

A friend of mine and his kids go out there once in awhile, they catch alot of wally out of that lake. I have never fished it though.

Years ago, (I mean back in the 60's and 70's) people discovered Typo. Back then it was a great little lake for panfish and the odd walleye. However, over the years like so many metro lakes it has been fished out. I don't think anyone fishes it anymore. At least not seriously. Their may be a stray crappie or sunfish in their but they will probably be very stunted. After the panfish declined the carp and suckers too over.

Not that I am against carp. They fight hard and properly prepared can be as tasty as walleye. But it would be nice to see the lake closed down for a few years to let the panfish and other species come back a bit.

I fished this lake last year and caught a few eyes in it. They were small but fun to catch. The DNR used it as a rearing pond and that was why there was some eyes in there. Sounds like some people are trying to keep others away from it.

It isn't nor was it ever a rearing pond. The DNR actually stocks it on purpose for walleye fishing. Why I don't know. Apparently they found some one year that had swam up from Martin. Last, and only, time I was out there I churned mud with the small boat I was in. All I found was 4 feet of water.

It was a great little walleye lake at one time until everybody started flapping there lips about it and they fished it out. Taking there limits out of it every day ,it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that it wont last long!

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
