As far as we know, North Twin Lake is still not accessible. If you are able to get out there let us know. South twin fishing has been pretty good and will likely get better due to recent stocking. There has been decent action on a variety of tactics, so be prepared with sinking lines and indicator rigs. Wooly buggers, leeches and damsel nymphs are great to strip, especially around the recently stocked fish. Midges and chironomids are great bets for your indicator rig, as are balanced leeches. Buggy nymphs, like a bird's nest, are also good to try out. Now is a great time to head to twin, especially if you don’t want to tussle with the midge swarms on Crane Prairie.

Suggested Flies: Bird’s Nest Hare’s Ear #14-18, Dark Assassin #14-18, Bird’s Nest Or Black Depth Charge #14-18, Red or Black Zebra Midge #16-18, Black or Red Chironocone #14-18, Red or Black Yankee Buzzer #14,  Bruised Balanced Leech #10-14, Ruby Leech #10-12, Black Wooly Bugger #10-12, Olive Wooly Bugger #10-12, Black or Rust Slump Buster #10-12, Thin Mint #10-12, Olive or Black BH Mini Leech #12
