Water Conditions:
The road up to the lakes basin opened May 20. All of the lakes are clear of ice, but water temperatures will be frigid.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:
Fishing in Twin Lakes has been fair. DFG will be stocking in the next few days for the holiday weekend, and the same for the big Alpers. With the colder waters, the fish should be a little lethargic, so a full sinking line with a fairly slow retrieve should work well. A wooly bugger with a small mayfly dropper is a great technique any time of the season.

Recommended Flies:
Streamers-
Flash Buggers, Wooly Buggers, Mini Leech, Mohair Leech , Doc's Twin Lake Specials

Nymphs-
#14-#20 B.H.Chironomid Larva red,grizzly and black.
#14-#20 Frostbite black
#14-#20 Williams Lake Wonder black and red #12-#16 Callibeatis,
#12-#16 Hare's Ear , #14-#16 Muskrat Nymph , #14-#16 Prince Nymphs

Guides Hint: Bring lots of warm clothing layers.
