Lone Lake (92 acres)

This lake is 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, but is expected to be superb in 1996 for catchable-size (8-10 inch) rainbow trout, plus very fat yearlings (12 inches) and some holdovers (2+ pounds). 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. Some catchables will be stocked after May 1st to avoid bird predation.
