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.
