The Amador Flyfishers and the Calaveras Fly Fishers held a joint outing to Heenan Lake on Saturday October 11th.  

There were quite a few members and guests present.  There was a large crowd there when I arrived at about 9:30.  Looking towards the dam when I was heading out I saw 17 people between myself and the dam.

I down the west side of the lake back to the area that I had done well at the trip before.  

I had a bump and missed the first fish.  It seems like a regular occurrence for me at Heenan.  A few minutes later I had another grab and landed this beautiful 18 inch Lahontan Cutthroat.

That was my only luck for the day.  I ended up leaving early to head home and take Cindy out to dinner.
