Pristine Wilderness Fishing
Try your hand at sport fishing at Upper Twin Lake! Sockeye (red) salmon, dolly varden, and arctic grayling are just a few of the fish anglers can find in Twin Lakes. Anglers in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve must abide by all State of Alaska fishing regulations.

Ranger Recommendations
Remember that you are fishing in bear country. Bears have the right to prime fishing sites, as fish are a critical food source for them. Give bears plenty of time and room to fish. Come prepared for unpredictable and often severe weather.
Details
All ages, but young children should be kept close by due to the presence of bears in the area.
Pets are allowed in the park and preserve. However, because Lake Clark is excellent bear and moose habitat it is strongly encouraged that you leave your pets at home. Pets must be leashed at all times.
You must possess all required Alaska state fishing licenses and tags, and you must comply with State of Alaska fishing regulations.
Upper Twin Lake is northeast of Port Alsworth, and is not on the road system. The lake can be accessed by float plane from many locations or by boat from Lower Twin Lake.
Accessibility Information
The shores of Upper Twin Lake are primarily rock and gravel. Fishing along this area may require crossing streams and areas with unstable footing.
