This map contains public fishing access areas, campgrounds, boat put in locations, parking areas and BLM Public Land areas. Coverage area encompasses Twin Lakes, Robinson Creek, portions of the East walker River and Bridgeport Reservoir.
The only way you could improve Twin Lakes is if you gave it a better name. There are two Twin Lakes in Mono County, the pair on this map are certainly worth a more enticing name. The last two state-record brown trout were landed in these Twin Lakes.
The trail above Upper Twin Lakes also leads to some nice spots along upper Robinson Creek for fans of brook trout. Below the lakes, Robinson Creek's first two tree-lined miles are the most popular and easily accessed from a day-use lot at the campground.
Anglers also know Bridgeport Reservoir for its famed tailwater, the East Walker River. Highway 182, follows the river, offering great access and making it any easy excursion from Bridgeport. Much of the river north of the reservoir is also part of the East Walker River Wildlife Area and is home to not just trout, but to bald and golden eagles, prairie falcons, river otter, mink, black bear and migratory mule deer.
