Fishing Report for Lake Tahoe   by Kevin Rockwell

Why do fishermen teem to Lake Tahoe, be it on the California or the Nevada side? This magnificent lake, dubbed "The Jewel of the High Sierras," is famous the world over, not only for its beauty but for the bounty it contains. An abundance of prize fresh-water sport fish thrive in Lake Tahoe's clear, deep-blue waters, and the sport fishing is deemed some of the best in the world.

Lake Tahoe travel and sport fishing are the stuff that lifetime memories are made of. The lake itself is the second deepest in the United States, covers 191 square miles and boasts 72 miles of gorgeous shoreline. Cradled in the scenic High Sierras, Lake Tahoe camping offers miles and miles of perfect sites to stargaze under the vast, clean skies and contemplate your next encounter with that trout in the early morning.

Unlike many other sport-fishing waters, Lake Tahoe is open year-round. Fishing licenses are reasonable and available online. Either a Nevada or a California fishing license give permission to fish anywhere in Lake Tahoe. There are even free fishing days during the year, especially appropriate for the novice.

Lake Tahoe fishing regulations include a limit of five per day, with no more than two being the famous lake trout. For the avid fisherman, there are always interesting fishing events to explore at Lake Tahoe, such as rafting, a kid's fishing derby, barbecues and festivals, to mention a few. One of the most popular fishing events is the Kokanee Salmon Festival, which takes advantage of the yearly landlocked salmon spawning in South Lake Tahoe.

Here's a partial list of the fantastic fish of Lake Tahoe and surrounds, just to whet your appetite: brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout, golden trout, the Mackinaw and landlocked Kokanee salmon.

Fly fishing to sport fishing to trophy fishing: Lake Tahoe is host to it all. First class year-round charters are a specialty for Lake Tahoe fishing, as well as the usual ancillary activities in this scenic area. Good fishing, good eating, good times.
