Another looks good!

Mike G at Lost Lake ca. 2009

WHAT: Lost Lake [Clatsop County] outing
WHERE: drive west on highway 26 and turn off on the road to Spruce Run Park on the Nehalem River. Just before entering the park, a gravel road (unsigned but known as the Lost Lake Road) takes off on the left. This road travels 5 or 6 miles to a parking area on your right. Just past the parking lot is an unimproved boat ramp.
WHEN: Andy hopes to be at the parking area by 10 a.m.
[You can show up anytime - just be sure to say 'Hello!']
INSIDE STORY: Lost is less than 30 feet deep and is divided into two parts by a small passage; it is a 15-acre natural forest lake nestled in the mountains. The lake is stocked with rainbows.....and a steelhead or two to keep you on your toes! The lake is best fished with a pontoon boat or float tube.

BONUS: weather looks good this year - chance of passing hail squalls is ZERO! [ask Andy about it...]; partly cloudy/mostly sunny and heading into the 60's! Come warm up those skills for the summer season!
