LOST LAKE is FOUND! [just make certain you get to the right one...HINT: from Portland-head west on Hwy 26!]

WHEN: Saturday April 18, 2015
WHERE: Lost Lake [Clatsop County]
WHAT TIME: no clock here - mid morning around the boat ramp
WHAT to EXPECT: First day trip of the Season - Lost Lake 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 has stocked  rainbows as well as larger holdovers - the bonus? A few steelhead. The lake is best fished with a pontoon boat or float tube.
Directions: drive west on highway 26 and turn off on the road to Henry Rierson 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. Andy hopes to be at the parking area by 10 a.m.!
