Der Angler, I've fished the lake for the last six years and find it a better than average lake for keeper bluegills. Beyond that fairly consistent catch, we have caught muskie, largemouth, striped bass, crappies, channel catfish and a lonesome bullhead. We have seen plenty of good-sized carp, too, but don't fish for them. The lake seems easier and more productive to fish in spring--both weeds and algae can be a problem--but we have had good days right up until the lake turns over in the fall. Many of the bluegills have been caught close to shore (sometimes even in August heat) on waxworms, pieces of nightcrawler, minnows, spinners, Minimites, and since I started fly fishing, Mackie flies and poppers. Trolling for striped bass has probably produced the most fish after our bluegill fishing, and we have caught them up to 15" though our usual catch is a mix size-wise. Spinners, wooly buggers and small Clouser Minnows for the stripers. Bass up to four pounds (though I've seen much bigger caught and lost a bigger fish near the boat) on crawlers, crankbaits, a Johnson spoon with a pork rind frog, and on my fly rods a Clouser minnow, black wooly bugger and a bead head Olive Zonker. Muskie on the Johson spoon setup above and just after sunset on a mouse pattern surface fly.

Caught catfish near SW corner of the lake in about 7' of water using crawlers and orange jig. Tried a whole bunch of other spots around lake but no success. First time fishing Long Lake and would welcome any tips!

They have been stocking it with musky that could be a good reason why you don’t see many walleye anymore are used to catch them in the far north east corner of the lake 20 years ago

Marlowe, Live image sonar makes short work of finding them out here, there are a number of people filming on this lake, If you watch some commericals you might recognize the shorelines. 

Plenty of fun times out there this summer from the kayaks!

Been fishing Long Lake for more than 7 years, Only caught 2 walleyes. Some friends have caught a few. State regulations apply. It not a part of the Fox Chain. Used to not see many boats.Seems residents don't fish the lake.  Now it gets  more boats since Frank Hyla from time on the water brought Mike Icannali out there bass fishing about 3 years ago to film a show.  This lake is hit or miss,not much structure. Fish are very hard to find.

I have only seen one walleye caught in the last thirty years, while I was fishing for crappie.  I don't know about the regs, nothing posted at the launch.
