Spatial Join Intersect

Ultimately I want to attribute a lake with the fields from a stream that runs through the lake. There are several streams that end within the lake polygon so any of the spatial intersection tools will capture both the streams running through and ending in the lake.

How might I choose the stream that runs through the lake and use this for the Spatial Join? Python? Is there a spatial select tool i'm not aware of which will refine the intersect option?
