I might do it next year. You can catch the tour boat which is the only boat allowed in Crater Lake and they can drop you off at Wizards Island and you can fish the whole area. It's still gonna be a 5mile hike back to the parking lot.

not alot of people knows that you can fish the lake. I spoke to a Park Ranger and tour guide and he said it's very good fishing off Wizards Island but not a lot of people do it because of the 5mile Hike back to your Car. I will probably do it next year 8)

There are naturally reproducing populations of rainbow trout and kokanee in the lake. Crater lake hasn't been stocked since the '40's if I remember correctly. There are no size or catch limits. That's because the fishing isn't very good. The lake has low productivity. The kokes are the most abundant fish but are (or were when I was there in the mid-'90's) very small. Maybe 10 inches. No bait of any kind is allowed.

But the scenery is amazing and the water is much more clear than Tahoe.

No I didn't. I just talked to some folks on Wizard Island. There was a guy running a charter at that time. Maybe things have changed.
