Lone Lake

This lake is managed as a quality fishing water where fish in excess of 16 inches can be regularly caught here.  Fishing is best in the spring and the fall as warmer water temperatures and reduced water clarity in the summer can limit catch rates.  Anglers use various lures and flies under selective gear rules: leech and chironomid fly patterns, and large lures. A bloodworm fly pattern is often effective in February and early March. Introduced warmwater species (i.e. Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch and Brown Bullhead) are also present in the lake. A large WDFW access on the north shore has a concrete boat ramp, parking area and toilets.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Fishing prospects calendar

Rainbow trout

Fishing success for Rainbow Trout is generally best in the spring when thousands of fish are stocked statewide, but they can be caught year-round in most waters with a little patience and persistence. Success remains high into June and gradually declines as water temperatures increase and fish move offshore to stay cool. Fish that escaped the spring harvest return to the nearshore areas in the fall as waters cool off. Some waters may also be stocked again in the fall further boosting catch rates.
Chart showing fishing prospects throughout the calendar year

Largemouth bass

Fishing improves throughout the spring as waters warm and fish move onshore, peaking during the spawn. Summer is a slight lull though dawn/dusk hours can be very good. Catch improves in Fall as waters cool, vegetation begins to die back, and prey becomes more available. Winter is the hardest time because fish are offshore and slow moving.

Brown bullhead

Fishing improves throughout the spring, peaking before the spawning period in May and June. Fishing may pick up in early Fall, followed by a decrease in action as waters cool. Winter is a difficult time to target this species.
