Cody/Phelps

I recently moved from Burnsville to Lonsdale. I have been doing a little shore fishing on Phelps, I have yet to see a boat on Phelps or Cody. Why is this, lakes to shallow this year? I'm out there once or twice a week. I would like to get my boat out there but I'd like to know whats up first. Maybe I'm just there at the wrong time?

Booth, welcome to the area! I live about 2 miles from the access as the crow flies and it never has been a popular summer lake, don't ask me why, it just hasn't. It's great for canoeing because of no boat traffic and undeveloped shore, and been pretty good on early ice.

springtime just after a rain, early ice and very late ice right in the channel are usually good for crappies and some nice eyes. have to fight off the bullheads sometimes. hard water fishing for slimers on north west side is good. pannies along the cattails will always produce action during the summer. it is a very shallow lake though, so if you have anything bigger than a 14 footer think twice about puttin it in. good luck. might see ya out there in the next couple weeks, I'll be in the camo boat wearing chest waders. grin.gif

I'll be in the brown boat with waders. 2 person duck boat with the big Minkota motor on it. My son and I get out there a few times each year. Will keep an eye out for ya. If you are ever cruising Arizona street NW and see the big goose decoy mail box you know you are at The_Duckslayers house. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
