the tale of walter
No self respecting lake is without it’s legendary “ONE THAT GOT AWAY” story and Lost Lake is no different. Ours is named Walter. He lives in the inky darkness near the bottom of the lake but occasionally rises up to steal bait and torment the anglers. He is rumored (of course..) to weigh 50 pounds or more. Walter is said to have a full “beard” made up of thousands of dollars of lures and broken line. It is our heartfelt wish that you be the one who proves to be a match for Walter. Good luck and we hold no hope that any will succeed.
