Anyone been up to Lone?

Tim,
Thanks for taking time to give a few tips on Lone. I was actually planning on heading that way later this morning. (after an appointment I have to keep) I'm thinking that the impending weather change later today may spark them a bit. I may decide to hold off and go later and catch late afternoon/dusk action.
One thing, I can't remember, do they close a gate at dusk? I just hope I can stay awake until then, another sleepless night due to meds. Did someone say "can you nap in a pram"?

No gate is closed.

There is no gate, but you are suppose to vacate the parking area at dusk. That being said, I've launched before sun rise (back in the days when I got up early) and have fished a little past dark, especially in the spring and fall. I've never had a problem with anyone telling me I had to leave. I think the "dusk" regulation is mostly to keep folks from late night parties or camping out.

Lue, never got a chance to make it up there. :(
Things with work and family got too busy. I did make a quick run out to Green Lake since it was close for 2.5 hours. Never fished there before and got skunked on Friday.

Really in need of some fishing time on the lakes. Haven't been out much. Haven't been up to Lone since last year this time. Never been to Pass.

At this point, i'm starting to prepare things ready to take a bunch of church kids out to catch planters, once Beaver, Pine, Cottage, and Boren get stocked.

If anyone is going anywhere fun, let me know! I'll plan for it and then maybe I can get out of doing other things because it's not just me haha :)

41 near the surface on Saturday. Tough going with hits on the bottom or near shore early. Nice fish, just taking a lot of work and patience to draw. Also tough because it's taking 2-3 strikes to get a decent hookset..
Been having that problem too at another lake last weekend and I am loud because you hear me using my Fish whispering technique it's like Hog calling
