Big Cultus lake is surrounded by great hiking trails, mountain bike single track, and campgrounds. If you're looking to hook into some big lake trout while camping at a boat-in campground - this is your spot! Big Cultus lake and it's little brother are tucked away in the Hoodoo Recreation area near Crane Prairie Reservoir. Cultus Lakes Resort holds an annual mackinaw (lake trout) tournament for people interested in some competition. Little Cultus is a great place to take the family for a quiet weekend of fishing and camping. Rainbow trout angling, 11-17 inches are the primary fishery. Brook trout stocking ended in 1997 but some fish up to 16 inches are still found.
