Twin Lakes Improvements

June 13, 2017 daryl bauer

Twin Lakes south of Bassett have been a couple of very productive and popular sandhill lakes over the years.  I just want to point out that there are some improvements coming to those fisheries!

Boat ramp improvements planned at Twin Lakes WMA

LINCOLN, Neb. – Angler access improvements are planned this summer at Twin Lakes Wildlife Management Area in north-central Nebraska.

New boat ramp facilities will be built at both north and south Twin lakes. South Twin will have an access road, parking area and walkways to a restroom and a concrete boat ramp built at this accessible launch facility. North Twin will have a gravel access road, rocked parking area and concrete boat ramp.

Work should begin in early June and be completed by the end of July, depending on the weather. The existing parking area located off Eagle Nest Road at South Twin Lake will be closed during construction.

Rough fish – primarily common carp – were removed from Twin lakes in the spring of 2016. Since then, the re-stocking of bluegill, black crappie, yellow perch and largemouth bass has been ongoing.

These boat launch improvements are, in part, from the boat launch facility capital maintenance funds and matching U.S. Coast Guard boating safety dollars. Contact Steve Satra at 402-471-5446 for more information.

Twin Lakes WMA is located 15½ miles south of Bassett in Rock County.

You will notice that a couple of new boat ramps are included in the Twin Lakes improvements.  Without boring you with all the details, let me steal an image from the project plans put together by our engineers on this project, Olsson Associates.  This will give you a good idea of where the new boat ramps are going to be built, one on each lake.


Good fishing and better access ahead!
