Twin Lakes - Bridgeport
Twin Lakes Kayak, Canoe, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information
These two stunning crystal clear alpine lakes are located in the Eastern Sierras. The well maintained Twin Lakes Road is an easy and relatively flat drive. The intriguing scenery, minimal amount of boat traffic, and perfect water conditions make this a must-see paddling destination. If it weren’t for the cold winters, I’d move there in a heartbeat.
Upper Twin Lake has a 35 m.p.h. boat speed limit and allows jet and waterskiing, whereas Lower Twin Lake’s boat speed limit is 5 m.p.h. The only boats I saw on either lake while I was there were a couple of small fishing boats and a number of kayaks pulled up upon the shore. Otherwise, I had these two lakes entirely to myself. After a satisfyingly paddle on the water, this superb kayaking experience will leave you full, rested and wanting more.
Twin Lakes hums with outdoor
activity all summer long. Enjoy pristine fishing,

scenery, but some of the largest brown trout found
in California have been caught here.
