Fishing Report: At an elevation of 1159 m (3801 ft), Crystal Lake is known to be a good producer of trout up to 2 kg (4.4 lb), although, a 6.3 kg (14 lb) rainbow trout is on record. The best months are in the spring, early summer and fall, with the peak time being May 1st to July 15th. The lake also produces well throughout the winter ice over period. Crystal Lake is stocked with Rainbow trout. Anglers employ a number of techniques, including fly fishing, and spinning or trolling gear. The water is crystal clear and so fly fishing with long leaders of up to 20 feet are recommended. Watch for the frequent hatches and this often challenging lake can prove quite rewarding.

Ideal for float tubes and canoes, this tranquil lake is not for the water ski or power boat enthusiast. Car toppers can be launched and rowing or electric motors are advised.
