The Twin Lakes continue to fish well. This is likely the nicest weather we’ll see up there for quite some time so I would get up there soon. Any week now we could get a few feet of snow up in the hills. Surface action is slow but bring some callibaetis just in case a quick hatch pops off. Under the surface, the fish have been chowing down on leeches, under indicators, and on the strip. Small streamer patterns are also getting slammed by some big rainbows. Nymphs are the way to go if the fish aren’t biting on a meaty fly. Dark assassins, midges, and chironomids are great. Time is running out to get up to the Twin Lakes, don’t miss your shot.
