Loomis Lake is a blue color and the water is clear. You have to cross the Highwood River and then Loomis Creek five times, both can be swift in the spring and earlier in the summer. Its best to take a bike up park way though as the trail is long for a trip. As usual with lakes in this area the trail follows a steep headwall up to the lake
The cutthroat in this lake are plentiful and you can sight fish when the wind is calm. I have visited this lake at different parts of the year both when the ice was off and when there was a very small portion of the lake open. I recommend visiting this lake later in July so the ice will be gone. As you can see from the two pictures the colors can range in this lake. Fishing flies and lures are effective here. The conditions can often be windy as well. I have never been disappointed in the action here.
