Paddle Notes: The peaceful atmosphere sets the stage for this perfect paddling destination. Serene Lakes captured my heart with its breathtaking beauty. The restriction of motorized boats and the easy paddle around its incredibly scenic shoreline guarantees the perfect outing for the entire family, at this "serene" destination.

You don't want to miss paddling these two conjoined-twin alpine lake  which supposedly named Serena and Dulzura by none other than Mark Twain.  There's no wonder  why the homeowners whose cabins and grand chalets surround the lakes are so protective.

Kayak Fishing: The fishing on the lake is ok.. You can catch rainbow and lake trout with both bait and flies.  sailing, rowing, canoeing, , and fishing are popular activities on Serene Lakes. Serene Lakes has better scenery and paddling than fishing, but there are a few rainbow, and brook trout and catfish to be taken here but those few are difficult to catch. kayaking serene lakes
