Loon Lake
Photo of Loon Lake

Twenty-eight miles north of Spokane along the west side of U.S. Highway 395. This lake opens the 4th Saturday in April and runs through October 31st. The previous state record lake trout (30 lbs., 4 oz.) came out of here back in the 1960s. Loon is also known for its kokanee, which are now found in good numbers in the 11- to 13-inch range and have a generous catch limit. There are also largemouth and smallmouth bass, brown bullheads, yellow perch, bluegill, and a few other warm water species. In addition, tiger trout have been planted annually for the past few years. 

A WDFW access and two resorts provide boating access and other services

See Washington State Parks website for ADA accessibility  information.
