Crystal Lakes

Fishing Info

Located south of Leadville in the Hayden Meadows section of the Arkansas watershed, Crystal Lakes is a great stillwater fishery with stunning mountain views. This lake is spring-fed and holds many species of trout including browns, rainbows, and brookies. These fish gorge on midges and chironomids, mayflies, and damsels in the summer months. From May-September is when this fishery performs. 

Current Conditions

Crystal Lakes are iced off and stocked for the 2022 season. Expect fish feeding on midges with mayflies and damsels starting to become active as the waters warm.
