Any fish Lone lake recently? Thinking of heading up there next tuesday... 50F and light winds.
I was there Sunday morning. Water was 34 and air temp 38...a very chilly morning. Got 5 hits and landed 2, all on Hale Bopp leeches.
Cool. Thanks for the fishing report!
I might hit it Wed. afternoon until dark. I have to help my buddy put in a new floor, but we should be done by then.
Dang PF, you trekking up from Tacoma? I'm looking at the map and seeing Lone as a hell of a trip from my North Kitsap location with a need to take a ferry from PT and driving a ways or taking a ferry from K to E then M to C. I call that one complicated trip...so many other areas with better access for me personally. I've heard some stellar reports about Lone, but I can't pull the trigger on such a trip. No idea how long either route would take or how much it would cost in ferry fares, but I'm thinking it sucks getting there.
Best of luck to you though, get on it and get it good.
Lone is worth it. Ferry rides are cheap in the winter. Check it out when the water temps get up to 45-50
Think of it as a cheap daytrip! Kinda like heading east of the cascades! I'd think nothing of heading over to Bainbridge via Keystone ferry once the car ferry starts back up. Now that they take online reservations it's even easier as you don't have to worry about a ferry line screwing up the day.
From Keystone ferry - Lone is about a 30 minute drive - and it's a nice drive
Mumbles, If you want to venture up to Lone let me know in advance. If I can, I will meet you there and get you dialed in.
You guys are freaking awesome...and convincing. Maybe my buddy Robast is reading along and will choose that as our destination next Friday. Despite my leadership qualities it is nice to go along somewhere with those in the know for a good familiaraizatoin run first. Thanks again all.
This Friday or the Friday next week? I might be able to meet you there. Lemme know.
Pass is certainly an option, especially if there are a few locals to point us in the right direction. By my figuring there is no benefit to taking the ferry from M to C, Just take the K to E and drive up toward Anacortes. Pass is pretty close to where you actually get onto the island.
PF, not this friday but next.
Rob, your call my friend. We can hit it when it warms a bit more and explore other places. You've tossed out some great ideas all of which will make a great day. We should discuss it over a beer sometime between now and then.
Mumbles let me know. That Friday might work out. I'd hit Lone only. Days are still short. Anyhow, no worries.
It is actually a shorter drive from the Keystone Ferry to Lone than to Pass, but not by much. Neither lake is on fire right now but if the warming trend continues they should start to get good. This Friday (6th) I'll be at the fly show, next Friday I could wet a line, if the weather isn't crappy.
Before you guys start driving towards Port Townsend , remember/ be aware that it's a walk-on ferry only. If you want to drive anywhere on Whidbey Island you'll have to use the Clinton Ferry or come across the bridge....
