Heenan Lake off of 89 (Monitor Pass) in Alpine County opens for fishing on Friday. The lake is a hatchery for LCT for the state of California. 20 to 30 inch LCT are possible. The lake will be open for fishing Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the end of October. Fishing is barbless with a limit of zero. Small boats without gas motors and personal water craft are allowed. So who's going?? :-\

Looks like a great lake, is it doing well for water this year?

I'd like to check it out sometime, but I got Nooks on my mind!

I am thinking of going. Anyone know of the water level and extent of the algae now? (I assume the pic is not current).

I believe that the levels are good. The lake is mainly spring fed. I may be up in that area on Wednesday and I'll take a look. I'll probably not fish it opening weekend but I will be up there the following week. The picture is late September of last year.
