Gelatt Lake


At 34 acres Gelatt is the smallest of the main Plains Lakes. Grayling where stocked int the lake a couple years back and we are seeing some good size to them as well as the trout. The easiest access to the Plains Lakes is 8.5 miles from the Fly Store down Highway 230 at Pahlow Lane. Please be mindful of your speeds on the access roads to the lakes.

Gelatt Lake 12/18/21

1"-5.5" of ice. The lake had about 5" of ice off the boat ramp to at least 20 yards out. Past that ice looked newer and didn't venture out. Open water in the middle from the aerator to the east for about 70 yards and a small open area on the south shore halfway from the boat ramp to the other parking area. No fisherman out around noon.

Gelatt Lake 12/11/21

Gelatt was about 95% covered with a small section open on the west end. Ice is very choppy on both the east and west ends of the lake. The open section wasn't promising with the current winds but hope it holds and starts building. No one out on it yet and no evidence of anyone gutsy enough to test yet.
