Interesting story about the Loon Lake BLM Park:
I got there about 6:30 PM Tuesday afternoon, The young gal at the entrance was pleasant and asked what I was going to do! I said, "A friend and I are going to fish all night"! She said, "Well, you can fish all night, but you can't park all night"! I said, "What do you mean "I can't park all night"! She said that the boat trailer parking is a day use only area and closes at 10PM!
I said, "You have to be kidding me"! There has to be some way around this.
I said, "Why are you being so strict"? She said that people were parking in the day use area and partying and they had to start enforcing the closing time"! I said, "Do I look like I'm going to party"? She laughed, at least she had a sence of hummor! So, what can I do? She said," Well, you can park in the extra parking area, but it will cost you $7.00 so I said that would be fine! Then she said that if I did that that I had to stay out on the water all night and could not come in early! I said, "WHAT"!!!!! You mean that I cannot pull up to the dock, tie up my boat and use the toilet or leave early if I want?? She said, " Not until after 6AM in the morning! I was in a self control mode at that point!! So I said, "What are you going to do if I do, Tackle me and put me under arrest, this is Bull Sh*t"!
Anyway, I paid the $7.00 and went fishing. As luck would have it we did pull out about 5:30 AM and intentionally waited in the parking lot till 6AM just to see what would happen! Knowone showed up!!
Welcome to Government control of everything in our lives!!!
TTFishon said:My wife and I went there a couple of years ago. Drove in and turned around and left due to a sign that read "No Dogs Allowed". That's the first and only time I have ever seen that before.
rippin fish lips said:TTFishon, they don't like too allow dogs/pets on the beach. i think its dumb too, if they have to go to the bathroom on the beach we can just pick it up and throw it away. but whatever.
But anyways on the east shore, instead of going left into the main campground, go left after it over a green metal bridge, the (east shore) there is a dog and a little beach with (no sand) where dogs are allowed, there is good fishing off that dock!! dont let the stupid sign trick you! the east shore is nice, campground sites there are nice and its easy access right there to the lake! you will cath kokes there, trout, bass, bluegill, catfish, any warm water species!
TTFishon said:Hey, thanks for the tip rippin. Next time I'm out that way I might have to check it out again.
