The Methow Valley Fly fishers installed an aerator in Big Twin Lake several years ago, and by keeping part of Big Twin ice free all winter and the dissolved O2 levels up, it has prevented winter kill and given us more carryover fish. The club is going to do the same for Little Twin and is looking for donations to help the project. The Fourth Corner Fly Fishers is making a contribution as am I (since I live there part time!) Please consider helping them out! Here is a copy of an email I got. To: Fly Fishing Clubs and Interested Parties Methow Valley Fly Fishers plan to install an aerator in Little Twin Lake near Winthrop, WA, early spring 2013. MVFF has negotiated with an adjacent land owner for lake access and to purchase a share of his transformer. This project will very similar to the successful aerator installation at Big Twin Lake in 2007. The lake level has dropped considerably due to drought conditions and the lake has been unable to sustain a productive trout fishery due to winter kills. An aerator would provide ice free conditions over winter and dramatically improve fishing productivity. We would like to install the system this summer. The projected cost of the project is $18,000. In the past, many of you generously donated in 2007 to our successful Big Twin Lake aerator installation. We would appreciate your financial support of this project and ask for your pledge at this time. Thank you very much. Mary B.
