Big Twin Lake Outing October 12-13, 2019 – Canceled

October 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

  • This event has passed.

Big Twin Lake Outing has been canceled due to the lack of sign-ups. We will try again next year.

This is fall fishing.  Sunny days, chilly nights, active fish in cooler waters feeding up for the winter.  Big twin has excellent fly angling for rainbows.  Lots of fish cruise the shallows this time of year, and a sinker and leech are always good farther out.  My favorite is a dry line with a long leader to a weighted nymph.  Sight fishing or covering rises usually does the trick.

We’ll set up the barbecue and provide steaks for those that sign up in advance.  As always, bring your favorite appetizers and side dishes to share, beverages are on the club.  There is currently a Burn Ban in effect and may still be in effect during our outing.  If there is a burn ban in effect then only Gas Grills may be used, and no wood, charcoal or burning can be done, so please bring your gas grills to cook the steaks.

Call Big Twin campground to reserve a site, and don’t forget to let us know what you can haul over and back.  (coolers, grill, canopies, etc)

The fishing is pretty easy, with sinking lines and leechy-buggy patterns out in the middle doing well on hot days, and dry lines and nymphs around the edges and in the shallows in front of camp.  In the past we have even had adult damsel action in October.  Electric motors are allowed. For the WDFW Map click on http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/washington/558/  .

The club will provide steaks for all who sign up, and there will be grill for everyone to use. As usual, happy hour (with club beverages) starts around 5:00 PM, with dinner an hour or so later. Bring your favorite side dishes to share.

At Big Twin Lake Campground there are tent and RV hookup campsites available as well as showers, rowboat rentals and a boat launch (See fees below). Reservations are required to reserve Camping Sites and for the rowboat rentals.
