Heenan Lake Fish Report

Heenan Lake - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Liz Weirauch

The 7th weekend. Prince nymph still is the go to up there, stillwater nymphs, leaches and scuds. Jose's Jalapeno Minnow, and black or olive buggers seemed to do okay. Damsel nymphs, scuds and water boatmen. Open only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from the Friday before Labor Day through the last Sunday in Oct. Fishing hours: only from sunrise to sunset. Only artificial lures with barbless hooks may be used. Favorite rig of many: Black bugger and a prince nymph. Midging with deep bob indicator, might even be able to do a bit of dry fly early in the morning. Bring your patience for this water...
