Project Healing Waters Trip to Crystal Lake
July 12, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
Richard Pilatzke will lead a fishing trip with Project Healing Waters to Crystal Tuesday, July 12. This trip will bring disabled veterans from Denver and Pueblo to this lake.
Crystal Lake is located about five miles from Leadville on the upper Arkansas drainage. It is an easily accessible lake with good shore access, but float tubes and pontoon boats are allowed. The elevation of the lake is just over 9400 feet. It has great callibaetis mayfly and damsel hatches and we expect lots of dry fly action. It is a great lake for beginning and intermediate fly fishers. We will have the veterans fish in the morning, assisted by our volunteers. After lunch, our volunteers can fish with the vets. This is the fifth year we have sponsored this event and in all previous trips the volunteers and the vets have had a great time. Volunteers can meet at 7AM at the South Suburban Board of Realtors parking lot to carpool to the lake. Some volunteers may carpool from other places.
