Lost Lake (formerly called Devil’s Lake) is located southeast of Maltby between Highway 522 and the Snohomish-King County line. The lake is 12 acres, with a maximum depth of 13.7 meters. Lost Lake watershed is approximately 149 acres. There is a public boat launch located on the southwest side of the lake.
Lost Lake has low water clarity, moderate to high nutrient levels. Water clarity has increased in recent years.
Lost Lake has some trophy size fish, but you better figure on earning them. Visibility in the water is about 40′. At times fishing pressure can be intense. Bag limits are liberal. The kill is heavy. In spite of this trout survive to 20″ with regularity, and trout to 30″ have been reported. These fish are survivors. Long leaders and a stealthy approach are needed. Luck can play a role.
The center of Lost Lake is very deep and not easy to fly fish. Trolling streamers with very fast sinking lines can produce some decent fish. On the average the best fishing in this lake is fairly close to shore. All of the aquatic insects emerge from the shallower water. Terrestrial insects such as ants, beetles, termites and bees continually rain from the surrounding forest. They too are concentrated along the edges.
