How was fishing? I spent the day at Crystal Sat and did real well. Helped offset the cost of entry by having a trout dinner yesterday. I'm not one for trout especially slimers but these were nice fat healthy 12"nchers. Just perfect for eating. Spoke with one of the park rangers and got lots of helpful information in regards to all 3 lakes next to the fish cleaning station which is a class act itself. Caught one small Brookie and let him go. If you live on the south end and you want to escape the heat you can't beat it.

Oh no! We spent $5 a head for $15.00. That's still cheap for dinner. I appreciate the information as I will be going up again. I want to try North for some of those Lakers later in the year. The park ranger was saying some of these guys use their float tubes over 90 feet of water jigging for them. For me if I'm fishing over 10' of water in a tube and I fall out that's it so 90' shouldn't make a difference but sitting over that depth would give me the same creeps as ice fishing and watching and hearing the ice move. I couldn't do it. I'll have to wait until they move in. He said there are a few good ones caught there every year. Thanks again for the advice! You have just helped a lot of people.

You are a brave man! Yes we just told them we were going to the lakes. It does cost more if you go tot the top. There was a race of some kind going on Sat. This area is a great place to take the kids and quite a value IMO. Clean restrooms/clean fish cleaning station/gift shop/fishing/hiking/mountain biking and great photo ops. Lots of fun!
