Hey guys,

I haven't been here since 2007 or so but would like to come back this summer. I can not find a topo/contour map online-just wondering if anyone knows where to find one. I know the DNR does not even provide one and looked back through all 1800 posts here but no luck. I know all about the water quality and water level issues here but is the public launch on south shore usable for a larger (18'+) boat anymore? I see the campground is my only other option for now.

Feel free to message me so we don't clutter up the thread-thanks in advance.

Crappies are moving in. You can reach them from shore, would have better luck in a boat if you have one. Cool

Thanks for the info, I misunderstood you this winter when we talked about it, I thought they were putting a new boat landing in. Was good fishing with you this winter, hope to get on the water with you this spring.

As I said a while back, there're ideas to build a new launch at the old gravel quarry and move the road behind it. Like I said it's just an idea right now and far from completion, not sure what they want to do with the current launch. Cool

This lake is a waste of time until the DNR wants to put some money into rebuilding the landing! That is the bottom line.

Public launch is still there, but some of it's still underwater. Room for a couple of trailers. Campground has it's launch open for a $10 fee, $50 for a year round pass. Watched the DNR as they pulled up a fish trap and they were scooping out all kinds of fish, not sure what all was in there. Cool

I see the DNR had survey nets out last week. Does anybody have any reports on what they found?

Had a pretty good year ice fishing, despite the lack of pressure seen the last few years. Early ice the lake was on fire, but you had to go out at night, during the day you were almost wasting your time. It slowed down a lot later in the year like it does everywhere else. Some nice bass weights were brought in during the jamboree. Top 3 bass were all over 5 and a half pounds. Got some good news to report. In case you haven't been by the lake lately it is being SUCKED DRY!!. This whole pumping project that only took 8 years to complete is actually working!! It's still about 15" above the "normal" high water mark set by the DNR, and will have to be shut down in about a month pending an algae bloom of biblical proportions. The DNR also extended the waste water discharge permit for Crystal Lake RV Resort until a time I can't recall. Also the foreclosure process took a long time, but the place got sold just yesterday to an owner that actually cares. Things are starting to look better for this place!! Cool
