This lake is huge, no shade to speak of so come prepared with lots of sunscreen. The fishing is grand and if you have a boat or can rent one you will reach your limit in no time.

Always a fun day. I recommend using Doug Rodricks at Sierra Drifters Guide Service. He's very knowledgeable and helpful. His gear is top notch and he's patient and helpful if you're a beginner. I can't say enough about his guiding services. We ALWAYS use Doug!

Ten of us including the kids attended the 4th of July fireworks show at Lake Crowley. The show was excellent. We all had a good time. Getting into the landing by vehicle was pretty quick. Getting out to go home requires a little patience.
