Heenan Lake Fishing Report

Heenan Lake - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

I venture up with fishing partner Tom Blotter. We fished from shore for a few hours with no bites. Many anglers were fishing from Float tubes with flies. I saw many cutthroat trout caught and released averaging 12 to 24 inches. With the exception of one that was about 6 inches. Best areas to fish were just off the landing point closer the other side of the shore and by the dam area. Catch and release with artificial lures or flies with barbless hooks only until the end of October.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
