Has anyone ever sailed Cultus Lake?

I would imagine you'd get a decent thermal pulling up the Fraser Valley and it looks like you'd have enough room to launch a kite on the pebble beach here:

Thinking about foiling so only need 10 knots.

Back in the old days people sailed Cultas in outflows . Alloette looks doable hike down to gold Creek. I want to try Chehalis lake.

I was there quite a bit last summer (not sailing though). The westerly wind came on suddenly around noon and shut off suddenly in a few hours. It was about 15 knots, same days as Locarno. There was always one windsurfer on the water during that time. It seemed too risky for me, because of all the rental boat and jet ski traffic.
I was told Harrison was a better choice.

In this video there is a great looking breeze heading up the lake onshore at the marina and even some small waves being generated. Looks like it's still early in the season though and not full on summer:

Later in the video there is a shot of that beach I linked, looks decent for launching a kite:
