Heenan Lake Fishing Report

Heenan Lake - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

Located on top of Monitor pass on highway 89. Open Friday, Saturday and Sundays only until the end of October. This is a no kill lake, catch and release, artificial lures or flies only with barbless hooks. Fishing has been good in the early morning and evening for anglers using yellow silver bladed Panther martin spinners. No motors allowed on the lake, but you may use electric trolling motors on small carry down boats. Float tubes are a favorite way of angling on this lake, it some times looks like a bowl of Cheerios when the fishing is hot.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to nevada@fishreports.com. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
