Fishing Note

Adults (15 years and older) who wish to fish must use the South Lake with a valid fishing license. Fishing on the North Lake is reserved for youth (14 years and under).

The Parks Department requests your assistance in determining when the north lake is used for juvenile fishing. Please take two minutes to fill out this survey.




Sunbathe or picnic at either one of two sandy beaches located at the Twin Lakes. Boating, paddling, and other water activities are also popular, although fishing is a popular use of this park. Fish year-round in the natural spring-fed lakes.

The northern lake is designated for juvenile fishing, while the southern is open with a valid fishing license.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife normally stocks the south lake with rainbow trout Mid-March, late April, early May and Late May.

In addition, two local fishing clubs cooperatively stock the north pond late May. Blue gill and channel catfish can also be caught.


Park History

The park originated from the excavation of gravel for the construction of Interstate 5, these two adjoining rectangular-shaped lakes have evolved into a popular 44-acre park.


Be advised, the implementation of a parking permit requirement at Twin Lakes Park (during the summer months) has been postponed until further notice.
