Had my fishin buddy's say I got to be a member of the fish sniffer so one set me up with a user name and..... I said I got to go out fishin to find somthing to write about. Good Excuss,So I went to beautiful Loch Lomand. Caught my only 14" bow in the first 10 mins On a gold cast master. Just like opening day Only that was an eagle lake 2#. The fishin is spotty but it is so nice to go out there and listen to nature at it's best, and still come home with a meal.

welcome to the boards, dan. loch lomond is truly a beatiful lake. i have fished there a few times and did well to the right of the launch ramp. if you put fish on a stringer, beware as there are big bass that will take your fish. fish the points..... if you have a boat, go towards the dam... there is a barricade to keep you from getting too close. be sure to post your results. another good spot is the creeks that feed into the lake.

Welcome to the boards Uncle Dan! About time! ;)

Uncle Dan has had a few of his catches documented here...heres the fish he caught at Loch Lomand on 3/1/08

Here's one from the fall of '07, at Cherry Lake


Uncle Dan, and the Aqua Lund, at Beardsley last week.

Not to mention the fact, that you will never meet a better guy to fish with.

Does Loch Lomond have any special restrictions for boats? I believe that it is electric only. Does that mean that you can keep your outboard attached, but of course never running?

Also, is this lake undergoing the EBMUD inspections as well? Thanks for the help guys, I've never been to the lake before and would love to try it out.

Electric motors are allowed only,no gas outboards allowed.I've see boats with outboards on,but you can't use them.I wouldn't recomened bringing a outbaord as they are doing boat inspections to enter and launch a boat.They are trying to stop invasive snails,species,etc from entering the watershed.When you enter the gate at the entrance they will give you a boat inspection.They will make sure your boat is dry.They will also check livewells,trolling motors,etc.If your boat is wet they will not let you launch as all *boats entering must be dry.This is all new and these inspections started this season.You can also rent a boat with trolling motor or bring your own trolling motor and rent a boat without a trolling motor.
