Haven't fished there this year, but have spent many enjoyable hours chasing the bluegills and bass on this lake. We usually fish there the 3rd week of June, but you still should be able to fish fry at least once during your stay. We liked to fish the week flat which is just "out and left of the access". Down where the lake narrows there are some bull rush patches out in the lake, fish the edges and inside for bluegills and bass. If the fish don't bite on Twin, there are litteraly hundreds of lakes within 20 miles. The last time we were on Twin 80% of the sunfish had those little black spots on them. Don't know this year but keep Pickeral Lake (just northwest of twin) in mind if nothing is going on twin. Pickeral Lake has lots of sunfish, crappies, walleyes, largemouth and smallmouth and is a very pretty lake. Good Luck!!!

I will be fishing Pickerel this September, can anyone tell me where to fish for Walleye and Crappie on this lake? Which lake is better, Pickerel or Twin Lake?

I haven't fished that lake much but I know alot of people that did last year. I don't know locations but I do know they were using lindy rigs with holes about the size of a pencil eraser in the spinner. If I remember right they were in pretty deep water to. Try cranks at night. Usually works on all other lakes. Good luck hope that helps a little.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
