Fished this as a kid a lot. Mostly small bass with an occasional decent one. Nothing to brag about. Never caught a pike ever. All pan fish were always small also. Ice fished it 3-4 times, never caught anything. Better off hitting up a different lake hard ice season. Summer can be fun for the kids.
Is this lake just for veterans? Does anyone fish it?
Walked out onto Kelly Lake this morning to check it out. Spudded my way from the west shore, out about 150 feet. Measured 3 inches of clear ice. Getting close. Didn’t see anyone else out there.
Checked public launch Sunday Eve. Had 2 - 3”. Went about 30 yards out before I turned around. After today’s rain I would think there are open spots.
I have always parked on the road near the driveway launch.

I found the public launch but I'm guessing you cant park on that drive. Can you park on the road? Looking to try and get a kid hooked on ice fishing and this lake is close enough to the house if interested is lost quickly.
