Phalen, Keller, and Gervais Lakes

Recommended Posts


Has anybody tried Phalen or Keller or Gervais?

I haven't tried Keller or Gervais this winter yet, but will probably check it out even though I already know in my gut that Keller will not produce anything worthy of talking about and as for Gervais - maybe a few walleyes in the keepable size here and there.

As for Phalen - that lake has been so hard to fish this winter. I literally fished the whole entire lake a few days ago - walked and pulled my sled from the north end to the south end and everything in between. I caught some nice perches in the 8 to 10 inch slot and some nice pikes in the 25 to 35 inch slot, including a few keeper walleyes near the center of the lake and I caught all of these fishes during the Day! Unbelievable! However, I'm not a truck so all the walking while towing became too much. Not going to try that again for a long time. It was a good work out though.

I was checking out Gervais today. seems they close the beach/ park area every winter. I havent found any place to park Aside from the boat launch that would get me close to twhere I want to be. Since I dont have a Snowmobile, I really dont want to walk from spoon all the way to the north end of the lake pulling my sled full of gear.

I agree shizzy. Ever since they remodeled the beach house and park they have been throwing them boulders in the way. I won't fish it till I get a wheeler

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
