  • Byers lake ice fishing

    Does anyone have any ice thickness reports up near Talkeetna way? Particularly Byers lake? I've heard it's hard to catch a fish there but going for a weekend to stay at cabin 1. Figure give it a try. Might try and do some small game hunting too.

        The one guy did say there was a foot. That pretty much answers my question. Thanks.

          There some minimum distance from trails stuff that kept me from shooting at anything. But it was cold, there was a lot of snow, and I was too lazy to get out if the cabin much. But that was last year, maybe there's not much snow this year and you can hike wherever.

            I know it isn't Byers lake but X-Y lakes near Talkeetna was around a foot thick last weekend

              Just did a day trip there Saturday. Fished the bay in front of cabin two. There was not a foot of ice only six inches there but when I fished it last month that part of the lake still had open water so i am sure that there is more ice in front of cabin one as that was where i fished the first time last month. I drilled holes from 50ft to 20ft. we caught nine fish 6 lakers three vary small burbs lakers where 25 to 30 inches. All fish where caught in 20ft or less. did not even mark a fish in the deeper spots. A foot and a half of snow up that way and no packed trail to the lake kicked my butt. I wanted to fish the other side of the lake but it was a workout to pull my stuff that far.

                Thanks a lot for the info Dave. Never fished up there so I'm looking forward to a couple days of it.

                  I would recommend taking along snowshoes and a shovel. Watch out for overflow.
