Our club went to Christmas tree lake June 2007. We caught brown and apache trout from 16-23 inches, and had a great time. Christmas tree is a premium lake on the Fort Apache Reservation. It is at about 8200 foot elevation. We hit a damsel fly hatch and many fish were caught and released
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
