Loon Lake Fishing Report

Cool weather last week moved the pre-spawn bass away from the shoreline and shallow water. However, bluegills are everywhere along the shoreline and there are still a few crappies hanging around the dock at the upper end of the lake, but most of them have finished spawning and moved elsewhere.

Planted rainbow trout are easily evident swirling on the surface or jumping clear of the water. About half the few anglers fishing the lake are targeting planted trout.

Nobody has recently been fishing for brown bullheads where Lake Creek enters the lake, but the fishing is usually good for them at that spot.

A couple of days of warm stable weather should have the largemouth bass hugging the shoreline.
