North Twin Lake will be closed May 4-13 for a USFS road restoration project. We haven’t heard much about North Twin but I suspect it will be fishing much like South Twin when the road opens, which has been good. Balanced leeches, chironomids, midges, damsels, and water boatmen are all good patterns to have in your box and try out. Fishing these patterns under an indicator or stripping them on an intermediate line are both good tactics. The Twin Lakes can be a great option to take a float tube. These smaller bodies of water don’t get pounded by the weather as hard as the big lakes so they can also be a great place to check out on days when the weather isn’t in your favor. By May 6, both the Twin Lakes will receive some new fish and this should ensure good angling throughout Spring and heading into Summer.
