Thanx to some kind help & advice from work2fish, I managed to get to Lonetree Reservoir and scout it out this morning without getting lost again. :( As you can see from all the exposed shoreline in the photo, the level is down quite a bit, probably not unusual for this time of year. What is unusual is that the water is still very clear and not too green with algae. The slope out from the shoreline is very gradual in most places, I don't think there would be too many spots where you could cast to deep water from the shore. I'd say a boat would be best, but I might come back and try it before sunup to see if there are any good ones cruising the shallows.

There were several boats on the lake (wakeless only) and I watched for a while but didn't see any fish caught.



Regards, W. E.

are there under water topo maps for lonetree?
Never seen one, but it might be possible to find a topo map somewhere that dates back to before the reservoir was filled. I don't know its history, though.

Just from looking at the lake and the shoreline I am betting that it has no bottom structure at all, unless underwater weed beds provide some.

Any idea why there isn't a boat ramp, where's all that licence money going anyway.
Notice the boat ramp in the photo, in the first message in this topic. There is a second one not far away from it. I don't think either one was built with license money, but I could be wrong.

With the water low, are the ramps still usable? Maybe that's what he meant.
Right now they are still quite usable. I watched several boats launched there with no problem at all. Some of them good sized ones.

The only person I saw with a problem was one guy who launched his canoe, floated out about 20 ft., and then stood up in it. It promptly rolled over and dumped him out head first and ruined his pager. :D But that was not a launching problem, I call that a mental problem.
