Enjoy the Emmrod Kayak King Fishing Pole for all your Eloika Lake Fishing

Hi Spokane County area fishermen, ladies, boys and girls.  Here is your August 10th Eloika Lake fishing update.   I touch bases with Lauri and Jerry of Jerry’s landing every couple weeks or so to find out how the fish are biting.  They are the experts who are on scene providing much of the bait, the lures, and some of the non-motorized boats to the fisher folk who stay at their resort and campground.  They are a convenient place to fill up on those necessities you forgot to bring with you through their small store so stop in and visit.  Their contact information is below.

If it is perch and crappie you crave, disappointment may be in your future as both are slow right now.  If you want to go wit to wit, hook to fin with bass, load up and head for Eloika Lake.  People using Jerry’s Landing caught a five pound bass last week and others caught two four pound bass this week.

There are two ways to get your boat in the water.  The public launch is located at the end of Bridges road on the east side of the lake–North on Highway two to Miller’s One Stop, left at the flashing light and you drive right to the public launch area. Do not forget the parking pass available at any fishing license seller.

The second is Jerry’s landing where there is a small fee  ($3) to park and launch your boat but you also have the store where you can stock up on the last minute needs you forgot or replenish what you use up.  You can also get updates on where the action is and how to fish.  Huge value for small dollars.  Tell them “Dave sent me.”

Jerry’s Landing:  41114 N Lake Shore Road, Elk Washington.  PHONE:  (509) 292 2337.  N on HWY 2 past Miller’s onestop to Oregon Road.  (If you get to the divided highway, you have gone too far.)    After turning left, go to Regal/Eloika Lake Front Road (Same intersection, regal to the right, E. L. front road to the left.) Turn left and follow that around to Jerry’s landing.

Happy fishing.

Loon Lake, Stevens County Washington, a report

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

I am blessed to live in an area of Spokane County which is surrounded by lakes. I have finally started fishing them! I just listed a couple properties in Loon Lake. One of them has lake access through Morgan Park, a subdivision on the north side of the lake. You can check out a tour of that listing at The point is, I am going to take advantage of that listing to do some shore fishing here in a month when the season opens!

In the meantime, here is some internet research on the lake.

Here is some information from the Washington State Department of Ecology:


Size (acres) 1100
Maximum Depth (feet) 100
Mean Depth (feet) 46

Drainage Area (square miles) 14.10
Altitude (feet) 2381
Shoreline Length (miles) 7.9

There is a lot of other generic information through which most folks will not enjoy plowing. For the severely masochistic, here is the link:

Shore Acres Resort has a great description of the fishing opportunities. Here it is in toto. Their link is at the end:

Fishing at Shore Acres Resort
Fishing season begins in April and ends in October. Loon Lake is considered one of the best fishery’s in the entire area.
Loon Lake is one of Eastern Washington’s largest lakes covering over 1100 acres. The water is crystal clear, coming from a natural spring, and reaches a depth of 140 feet. Elevation at Loon Lake is 2400 feet.
Fish species include Kokanee, Mackinaw, Small & Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout & Eastern Brook Trout. In addition there are Perch, Crappie, Brown Bullhead Catfish and Pumpkinseed Sunfish.

Check the Fishing in Washington Regulation Pamphlet for rules on freshwater fishing and eastside lakes. Youth under 15 years of age do not need a license to fish. License requirements and fees are available from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife. Recreational fishing licenses can be purchased at All Seasons Grocery and Hardware in the town of Loon Lake.

Pontoon boat and aluminum fishing boats are available to rent. Reservations are recommended. Ask about hourly and weekly rates.

Boat launch and moorage are available if you’ll be bringing your own boat. Ask about weekly, monthly and seasonal boat slip rates. We also have boat fuel available.

We carry a variety of fishing tackle and live bait.

When you arrive, ask for a map of Loon Lake’s favorite fishing spots.

Here is their link:

(Incidentally, I believe this resort and a huge piece of land is available for sale. If you are interested, please contact me as I am a licensed Realtor. (

This lake has another resort at Granite Point. There is also a public dock near the NW corner of the lake. As with all other state access points, you need to buy a public parks parking sticker to park there.

The silvers are a great fish to catch here. Any of our rods using the Top Water Tip would be great for these soft biting fish.

Enjoy this great fishing experience! Only about 5 weeks to go. (Usually opens 31 April but check with the State.)
