of it which makes it extremely popular for youngsters. Lots of freshwater
shrimp, dragon fly, nymphs, chironomid and may flies make this a
good fly fishing lake , however, trolling with flatfish and spinning
lures is the most popular methods used on the lake. See special

Loon Lake is located in a steep valley between BC's Bonaparte Plateau
to the north and west and the Arrowstone hills to the south and
east on the larger Thompson Plateau. The north side consists mainly
of douglas fir and ponderosa pine mixed with lesser amounts of poplar,
alder and common and mountain juniper. The south side of Loon lake
is composed mainly of englemann spruce and douglas fir. The entire
length of the west shore has many resorts and summer residences.
There are some cabins on the east shore, a ranch on the north east
end and an indian reserve to the southwest.
Loon Lake is a long, narrow,deep and clear lake. The shoal area
extends out into the lake for about 5 meters (16.4 ft.) and then
drops off quickly. The shoal area contains sedge and bullrushes.
Dense stands of coniferous forest mixed with small stands of deciduous
growth comprise the immediate shoreline surrounding the entire lake.
