Located on BLM property two (2) miles northeast of Loomis on Washburn Lake. There are several camping sites at the trailhead. A short 1/4 mile hike down to the lake will allow anglers access to the lake with float tubes and small rafts. Expect quality triploid eastern brook trout in the 12-14 inch range, along with the occasional tiger trout. Winterkill events have occurred more frequently since vandals destroyed the windmill aerator in 2013. A timeline of replacement is unknown.
