The wife reserved campsites at white star campground for this weekend. I have never fished Twin Lakes and am thinking about bringing a canoe to target fish in deeper water (Lakers). Do these lakes have high boat traffic? Is it even worth bringing a canoe? I remember the last time I took a canoe out on a super busy lake (Horsetooth) it was miserable because people are assholes.

I think Nate did a show about catching big lakers on top-water at Twin lakes. From shore.

Not many boats on twin lakes right now, nor many folks fishing.
But no idea how those lakes fish from shore or otherwise.

BTW: there's some really nice sites across the street at the Lakeview campground too.

Wife and I took our 17 foot canoe on Twin Lakes about 18 years ago.
Take yours. Its a pretty place to paddle and traffic was a none issue. You can paddle to the old Hotel and between the lakes.
Wind came off the mountains and we could surf the waves.

Some of us gotta be off shore.
It was in the 70's when I last canoed there, We used to camp right on the shore between the lakes before designated only camping lol.

Lots of folks up there go on solo vessels. I would stay moderately close to your launch due to weather, but I think it would be fine. Boat traffic isn't huge, but it's there.

Well I did not end up taking the canoe. Did have a fun morning on the belly boat up there. Caught several bows 10 - 14 inches, but nothing impressive. Missed a few of what must have been Lakers on a white tube jig near bottom. Did not fish as much as I would have liked, but I plan to go back in October. Sorry no pictures yet, I did take some video with the GoPro that my wife recently bought me. Still working that thing out.
