Long Lake (Kitsap County)

Long Lake does not receive any hatchery torut stocking, but has good fishing for Coastal Cutthroat in the spring.  Largemouth Bass and Yellow Perch fishing can be good there in the spring and into the summer, and fishing for Bluegill Sunfish and Black Crappie can be fair to good in the late summer and into the fall.  The lake is long and very shallow, becoming weedy in mid-summer.  But it is perfect habitat for warmwater fishing and supports Largemouth Bass up to nine pounds.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good - Via a dock at the WDFW access and at the county park

Fishing prospects calendar

Coastal cutthroat trout (resident)

Fishing is best for Coastal Cutthroat in the spring and fall. There is a summer lull as fish move offshore into deeper waters to escape the summer heat in July and August. Catch is lowest in the late-winter while adults are spawning in tributary streams.

Chart of 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.

Black crappie

Fishing improves throughout the Spring, peaking during the spawn. Summer is a slight lull, while Fall sees an improvement as waters cool, vegetation dies back, and prey becomes more available. During winter, the bite is slower, but anglers can have great success fishing through the ice when conditions are safe.
