Crystal Lake is a 9,711 acre lake located in Benzie County, just west of Traverse City. Access to this beautiful lake is in the town of Beulah at the municipal beach. Lots of great fishing on this lake: Brown, Lane and Rainbow Trout, Whitefush, Cisco, Perch, Smelt, Burbot and Sucker. Brown and Rainbow trout are caught along the dropoffs and average 3 to 6 pounds. In late May and early June, during the Mayfly hatch, whitefish are caught over Mayfly beds. One such bed occurring each year is located just east of Bay Point on the south shore. Both whitefish and trout are caught jigging wigglers on light line in 25 to 40 feet of water near these beds. Northern Pike and Perch are fished at the eastern end of the lake and jumbo Perch and trophy Pike are often taken. Look for weed beds when fishing pike and perch.
