The West Twin Lakes advisory for walleye longer than 18 inches and northern pike longer than 19 inches was expanded to include East Twin Lakes and the waters jointly referred to as Twin Lakes in the advisory listing.

The South Dakota departments of Health, Environment and Natural Resources and Game, Fish and Parks annually coordinate testing of fish for metals, pesticides and PCBs.
