I fished phalen tonight for about an hour and a half. I managed to catch 2 walleyes 15" and 15.5". The ice was about 4" in the area where I was fishing.

Good to see you had some early walleye success. I drove by there this morning and there was a lot of open water in the middle.

Hey there guy's. I have never fished Phalen before and thought it might have to be on my list of lakes to try this winter. I have never been there before. Is there a good place(s) to park? Also does the lake usually freeze over real well or are there areas that year in and year out are bad? Thanks. If I try it I'll send my report. Too bad it is gonna have to wait till after Christmas.

There are parking lots on the north, south, and west sides of the lake and on the east side you can park on the side streets. Usually the ice is pretty safe everywhere except sometimes on the north end the ducks will keep an area open. Also I have heared there are some springs in the lake, but I dont know how much of an effect on the ice they have.

Thanks for the info. If I get out there after x-mas I will let you know How things went. That calms my nerves a bit. I always hate going to a new lake. The ice makes me a bit nervous unless I've been there before.

Good catchin!
