Crescent Lake

Map of Crescent Lake


Crescent Lake used to have a small dam that enlarged it and held the water back for irrigation in late summer. This dam has now been breached and removed forever. The idea was to restore the area to its natural state. The water is now being stored downstream elsewhere. Crescent Lake contains both Brook Trout and Cutthroat Trout, both of which are naturally self-sustaining populations. The Cutthroats spawn typically in July in the tiny inlet stream on the SE corner of the lake.
