Heenan Lake Float Tube Outing - October 11-13  Your club announces a "do it yourself" float tube trip to Heenan Lake, south of Markleeville CA on October 11 - 13.  Your host will be Jeff Franzini who will be camping in forestry area nearby.  The lake is located on Monitor Pass highway 89.  This is a fairly remote lake which has no accommodations close by except for "no services" dry camping.  There are some accommodations about 45 minutes away in the Markleeville area.  A fishing website states "Special regulations apply on this lake. Catch and release, artificial lures or flies with barbless hooks.  The lake is open only Friday Saturday and Sunday for two months of the year, and will close on the last Sunday in October.  Boats are allowed with electric motors only.  You will have to hand launch as there is no ramp.  I would recommend a float tube, kayak or canoe. Shore fishing can be a little tricky due to the weeds along the shore line. This lake is the home of the brood stock for the Lohontan Cutthroat trout, which provides eggs for hatcheries all over the United States."  More information can be found at https://www.norcalfishreports.com/lakes/355/heenan-lake.php  If you’re planning on going, please let Jeff know at jfranzini@comcast.net
