Big Twin Lake

As you get near Winthrop as you travel up the Methow Valley you will find Big Twin Lake.  The lake receives plants of rainbow each year to assure anglers that fishing will be good for rainbow of 10 to 18 inches.  It is particularly popular with fly anglers, as it has selective fishing rules, no bait and barbless hooks only, are in effect on Big Twin.  It is also popular with standard gear anglers that follow these rules.  It is best fished in the early spring and in the fall.  Expect lots of company on the opening weekend, but very few fish it in the fall.  There is a private resort with a boat launch on the lake.
