A Brief History of Crystal Lake Club, Inc.
... Is still available for free. Click on the cover page on the right.
To help manage the weeds, the Club is purchasing additional grass carp for the lakes this spring. It takes a while for carp to be effective, given the limited number of fish we can add each year and the size of Crystal Lake, but it's one of several methods the Club is using to control lake weeds.
Bridge Road Inspection
Kentucky Transportation Board was out looking at the road over bridge and dam last week. It's apparently in good shape. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Please don't stand on the drain grate that is over the outlet at the Marina. It will be serviced this year to keep it strong but it's a dangerous place and not intended as an observation platform.
Cleanup Day - April 28th
Do you have a few hours to help the Lake and Grounds committee spring clean? We're having a clean up day April 28th, from 8 to 10 a.m. , weather pending. Please put it on your calendar, and come help. More information will be posted on this site, closer to the date.
What's in the lake and bigger than a Paddle fish?
The Derby City Dragons will be practicing with their 40 foot long boat in Crystal Lake again, until the flooded Ohio River becomes safe again. If you see them out there, cheer them on. More at DerbyCityDragons.org.
Invasive Species Reminder
Crystal Lake is near the the top of the local watershed so it's not as exposed to overflowing ponds and other sources of invasive species of plans and aquatic aminmals as other lakes. However, it is exposed to the Ohio and other bodies of water other ways. As the new season starts, please remember these notes from KY Fish and Wildlife:
•If you fish other sates and lakes, wash the baits, and fishing line/gear you used.
•Clean your boat, anchor, and other items that may have been submerged in water. This is best done by rinsing your transportation sources and equipment thoroughly with a hard spray or HOT (105° F) water, like that found at a do-it-yourself carwash.
•Drain water-related equipment before leaving a water-access or shoreline property.
•DO NOT dump leftover bait! DISPOSE of unwanted bait, including minnows, leeches, and worms, in the trash. Dumping of bait is the #1 way that Asian Carp are spread between waterways.
•If your dog goes swimming, wash your dog with clean water and brush its coat.
