I've got a short report from Lake Crescent. Jim Speaker's trip this spring had me wanting to pay the lake a visit. This was my first time fishing there for more than a couple hours. Three of us fished Friday and Saturday. Weather was about perfect, with some rain but just a breeze to riffle the surface. Our camp was on the east end of the lake at Log Cabin Resort, inside the park. We tent camped, but there are a variety of cabins available, along with a boat launch and docks. We beached our boats near the campsite. East Beach is near the head of the Lyre River. There are a several small creeks that come into the big lake in this area, including one that runs adjacent to the campground. The main lodge/campground has a restaurant and store. The campgrounds are far from private, but that worked for us, as we were in the boats all day. This was my first trip in my new craigslist find. A 12' lund. It was nice to cruise and fish from. In our two days of fishing, we cast and stripped streamers to shore, dry fly fished and stripped wet flies in the shallows. I had some success trolling and casting streamers, landed one fish on a dry fly take, but by far the best fishing came in the shallows, fishing a small little pattern that I don't know the name of. I also no longer have any of the flies. Tail and hackle were yellow pheasant hackle, body was peacock with copper rib. Sweet little wet fly. Maybe I got it in a swap. I will be tying many more of these! My last fly was just some hackle fuzz when I finished the fishing Saturday. My most productive part of the lake was the east end. I found schools of small kokanee and bugs. We all had a great time catching and releasing these wild beardslee and crescent trout! Here are a few cell phone photos of the trip.
