Default Fishing Lonetree Reservior

Hello all! New member here and trying to get out finally for the first time this year

I am planning on hitting on Lonetree tomorrow morning and I wanted to get thoughts on where to hit. I am fishing onshore, no boat

I had read that fishing the northern end is the best, but I couldnt see how to get over there unless you wanna make a long trip around the reservoir.

ANy suggestions would be great

Thanks

To get to the north side you park on the road and walk in at the ditch.

Yeah as said above park on the north side on 42nd St/Co Rd 14. There are a couple of pull-offs either side of the canal bridge. From there it's a resonable walk up the ditch to the lake. Lonetree can be a fickle s.o.b. I iced it several times this winter for eyes. Sometimes I caught multiple fish pretty quickly other days I froze my arse off as I drilled hole after hole looking for the bite and never getting one! You might also want to consider Lon Hagler as a back up, its right up the road from Lonetree and fishes decently from the bank. You can easily buzz up there if you can't find the bite on Lonetree.

Yeah I got skunked today. Lost a bit a tackle due to the high waters. Used lighter Rapalas and some smaller flies. They worked pretty good in the tree ridden areas.

Lonetree can suck with a boat as well... She can be a finicky one.

It can be a tricky lake for sure but there can be some amazing fishing if you hit it at the right time and place and right presentation. It has taken Me a few years and I still don't have her figured out but she gives it up sometimes and it can be on fire just gotta put in the time
