    Mann Lake was one of my favorite fishing holes because it held some of the nicest Lahontan Cutthroat I have ever seen. I hope this is successful.

  2. avatar Ken Cole says:

    By the way, there are no native fish in this lake and the alkalinity probably prevents just about any other trout from being stocked.

    The wind turbines proposed for the top of Steens Mountain (and on Mann Lake ranch land) should be a nice fit… NOT!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
