    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.

    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!
