Kelly Lake Kayak, Canoe, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information

 This seldom paddled lake is perfect for those who enjoy drifting quietly on calm waters at isolated destinations. An uncrowded atmosphere and breathtaking views kayak Fishing Kelly Lakeprovide quiet solitude while floating on its peaceful waters, which is about all you can do on this less than a quarter-of-a-mile shore-line lake. One drawback to Kelly Lake, (besides its size) is the water surface was completely overgrown with a water shield plant when I was here.

There was a small unpaved hand launch area along the lake access road. There aren’t any camping facilities located at Kelly Lake. The nearest campground is at Lake Valley Reservoir, which is located a couple of miles southwest off of Lake Valley Road.

Kelly Lake is planted with a few, not many, rainbow trout and fingerlings, but due to the abundance of weeds and lily pads overtaking the lake’s water surface, you’re liking to call it a day after a few casts when your lure gets hung up on the water vegetation. For those who have a lot of patience, the best fishing action is in the springtime right after the ice melts.
