I just wanted to start a topic for people to post about their catches, etc... in the Loch Lomond area, as I fish this system quite often.

I have caught some nice trout this year in a few of the lakes.

Hunter Lake: Roughly 10-15 Speckled Trout (Ranging from 8-12 Inches). Also, one brown @ 16.5 inches & one brown @ 19 inches.
McBrian's: Finally caught one @ McBrian's this year, after watching friends bring them in. One brown @ 14.5 inches.

Sadly, i've not had a lot of time to fish this year. My fly rod and waders have sat in the barn so far this season. I've done no brook/river fishing, just lake fishing. Only fished 1st Lake once this year, had one nice bite on bottom and missed it.
Always next time!

Happy fishing guys/gals, and hope to hear about some of your luck in this system!

What kind of flies are you using or are you trolling with spinning gear? How late in the season can you fish those lakes effictively before they retreat to the bottom? I've only done river and stream fishing and don't get out on the lakes much. I would really like to catch a brown trout this year.

For these lakes, I normally just fish 'bottom' from shore. Weight on the bottom, hook up roughly 5-6 inches from the weight. Cast out, let sit.

I do fly fish lakes sometimes, from shore or from my small boat. When I do, I use an array of flies. I try until one works.

In 1st Lake (and others in the area), I find Mid-July, late July is when the browns sink down to the bottom. Hiding out from the eat. But, they will still come in late evening when it cools down, to feed on minnow insects in the shallows. But, it becomes a little harder to catch them.

When guys troll these lakes, they use a variety of lures. From spinners/spoons to Rapala's.

My personal favorite, from shore and from boat is a small (2" inch) Rapala, that looks like a Yellow Perch. (Unsure of it's name), sorry.

I was wondering if boats were allowed in Loch Lomond (or second or 3rd Lake) since it linked to the water source of the city? It appears they are from the posts here, I always thought they weren't. Where can you launch a boat?

Rick, boats are allowed in all three lakes. You'll see boats in there just about every day. I'm not 100% certain, however, I believe you can not use gas powered engines though. They must be battery.

Although, I could be wrong about that. But, I do believe no gas powered.

If you want to launch a boat, the only place left to on 1st Lake now is to drive down Barnesville Road. Once you see 'Baxters Corner Store', turn down the road just after it, on the left hand side. "Sands Road."

Drive to the end of that road (it's a very short road), and people have cleared out the boulders at the end, to launch boats.

For 2nd Lake... follow Barnesville Road... turn left down '2nd Lake Road.' Shortly after turning down 2nd Lake Rd, on the left hand side you will see a sandy area, with a dirt parking area. Pull in there, and you can launch at that location.

There's a little road leading from the Black River road that leads right up to First Lake. I've never been on it, but have seen it from the sattilite maps on google. Is that road blocked or private, or can it be used?
I got alot of interest in that peticular lake due to the good things I'm hearing, and want to take my little 4 man inflateable row boat on it.

Black River Rd goes from Red Head to Garnett Settlement, I can't picture how it could connect to First Lake?
Ok, so first lake is actually Lock Lomond Lake, right? Then you have Second Lake. If you're going down Lock Lomond Rd, right after you pass "first lake" that's on your left, there's a fork in the road and you can go left or right. If you keep taking a left, and keep driving following the lakes, you'll get to a dead end road and at the very end there is a place where you can put boats in. It's not an official launch or anything, but you can back a boat in easily. You can see where people are doing it.

If anyone know for sure on if you're allowed a gas powered boat in there or not, could you please post. I've tried looking everywhere online and can'T find the information anywhere. My neighbour thought that you just weren't allowed engines that you had to mix gas and oil (2 strokes) can't see what the difference is myself, but that's what he thought...

Thanks everyone!

No 2 strokes aloud. You can use a 4 stroke as long as it's 10 hp or under. I myself follow this law but I gaurantee you will see bigger motors out there even though there are watershed signs posted all over the place.

If you exit Old Black River Road, you will reach Garnett Settlement.

If you follow Garnett Settlement to the end (on to Loch Lomand Road), or "Upper Loch Lomand", across from it is a dirt road. That dirt road will take you to a turn on to Otter Lake Road.

If you turn left on Otter Lake Road, and follow that road to the end... you are back on to the Barnesville Road. Directly across is 1st Lake.

However, i'm unsure if all of the dirt roads are driveable. I'd suggest just driving the main roads these days.
