Both smallmouth and largemouth bass are found in great numbers in Loon Lake, some exceeding 3.5 lbs. Look for weedy areas around the lake. I am told the waters along Archer and Dudman Islands have proven successful. Lake trout and walleye are two very sought after sportfish on Loon Lake. After being stocked with lake trout every couple of years, anglers are reporting catches of up to 22″. Walleye success has reported some 5.5 lb trophies 🙂 There is also a small muskie population in the lake.
