Sounds like a lot of fun. Persistence pays off! Really nice story of a good time with your kids. I’m not familiar with Lenore. Some of the fish look like browns. What were you catching?

As far as I know all the fish in Lenore are Lahontan cutthroat. They were originally from Pyramid lake in Nevada.

Great pictures Pathfinder.

Didnt they plant the Lahontans because of the alkaline  water of the lake and their ability to survive in it?

That's correct.  It was a barren water until the late 70s (I think) when they planted Lahontan Cutthroats from Pyramid Lake, NV.  The water is too alkaline for anything else to survive in it (you can see the residue on the rocks in some of my photographs), so the fish don't have any competition and grow pretty quickly.  I don't think I've ever caught a fish in the lake under 14 or 15 inches.

I will let him know that.  Coming from you, that will mean more to him than you know.   ;)

Yeah, me too.  That's why I decided to give her a shot.  Been years since I went.

I was at my mom's place over the weekend and came across these pics... I figured I'd post them, since some of you commented that this was about the last time you fished Lenore.  This was back in the mid-80's, during the lake's heyday.
