The road to North Twin is open now after a road restoration project. We have heard a few positive reports from there and both the lakes received an ODFW stocking on May 6th, which will ensure the fishing is good through Spring and into summer. We have heard good reports from South Twin. Balanced leeches and chironomids under an indicator are a good idea. If you are out in a boat or float tube, stripping damsels, leeches, water boatman on full sink or intermediate lines is a good tactic. The Twin lakes can be a great spot to try and escape the weather on windy/rainy days. These smaller bodies are more enclosed and seem to stay calmer on harsh days.

The reports we have been hearing from Crane have been pretty slow. It sounds like the docks are in now,......
So far the only lake I have a report from is Crane Prairie and it’s not a very good report.......
