If I remember right, they used to be permitted on Twin Lakes and I've seen them on Lake John a long time ago. Look at p. 5 of the 2006 regulations for marking of "permanent" shelters. There would be no need for that in the regs if they were proihibited on all public waters. Permanent shelters are specifically prohibited at some lakes, too, like Eleven Mile and Granby. The regs do not prohibit them on Twin Lakes.

I know this isn't a complete answer, but I believe they are still permitted on some waters.

Someone was talking about theirs or a friends permanent shelter that got broke into and all their stuff stole, so I'd stay away from that lake. :p

I think if you look up a specific lake in the fishing regs it states that fishing shelters must be portable for that lake (see Eleven Mile, Granby, Chatfield, etc.).

...I know it happened two years ago at Delanney Buttes, they had a bunch of stuff stolen...

it happened last year at delaney buttes you wish you could catch the pieces of s%$t that did it too. the 2 guys that they stole all of their stuff from are really good guys and are always willing to help people out. i guess that the guys got a little revenge by taking 1st and 3rd at the tourney last year and getting some money back. delaney, john and cowdrey all allow permanent shelters as long as you have your name, address, and phone # on it. it really sucks to know that there are fishermen out there that will steal your stuff if they have half a chance. they broke all the padlocks off their shelter to get in. i'd sure like to catch someone trying to steal my stuff. there just might be a little bigger hole in the ice afterwards sealed back up of course...

Thanks for all the information guys, unymore?
This regulation is a pretty hard one to figure out...

I'm from Minnesota and miss that kind of fishing. I am also thinking about building a few and selling them. I like a 6' x 4' x 6' high so it sits in the back of a pickup truck. I leave nothing in it and leave it unlocked.

(e) Permanent shelters (where permitted) must display owner or user name, address, telephone and CID number legibly in contrasting colors on outside and on shore side of shelter. Letters must be min. 2 inches high.

In Colorado, I wouldn't. Little different rules here than up North, probably lose all your stuff.

Actually that is not true. The top and bottom do not face shore unless its laying on its side.

Thanks Walking Eagle...
Last time I checked all directions on a lake do face the shore line. But I really want to get into it with my favorite CO about that one!
Just a hard ass i guess.... 8)
