A brief overview of the landscape and surrounding amenities of Lone Lake in Island County, Washington State. Consider this location for your next fishing expedition!
Lone Lake is about 92 acres, and occupying a broad meadow area 2 miles southwest of Langley on Whidbey Island, Lone has a large WDFW access on the north shore and is open year-around. Trout fishing can vary widely from year-to-year due to cormorant predation. Table quality of the trout is best in spring and fall when the water is cooler. Use large-fish methods here: salad shrimp bait, leech wet fly patterns, and large lures. Power bait, nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, marshmallows, cheese baits are all prohibited now and alerting the public to these facts could save some unsuspecting angler from a WDFW fine, not to mention helping to keep some of the quality fish in this fishery.
Mike Carey has found that this is an early spring lake of choice for him. It warms fairly fast and can provide some good fishing at times, however it should be noted that the wind can be a problem. Be aware of the lunch-time blow!
