Kayaking 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 LKayaking Twin Lakesower 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, boating, camping, and hiking.  Twin Lakes is a kayak angler’s haven, not only does it have stunning scenery, but some of the largest brown trout found in California have been caught here.
