Fishing in Lake Tahoe

When you come to a lake town for vacation, you’ve probably planned plenty of lake activities. Swimming, snorkeling, boating, and more can occupy your time on the water and always result in fun and excitement. Slow things down a little bit and cast a line in search of fish for your next lunch or dinner. With over 122 million acre-feet of water, there’s plenty of water to go fishing in Tahoe!

Lake Tahoe

A no-brainer, right? Venture out to the middle of the lake to find your next fish story. Whether you captain your own vessel or charter with one of the many local charter companies in the area, heading out to the middle of the lake is a safe bet in hooking a prize. Fishing from the shore is not recommended, as much of the shoreline is private property, and most fish don’t swim near shore.

Truckee River – West Shore Lake Tahoe

During normal water years, this stretch of the Truckee River between Tahoe City and Truckee features many different types of water conditions, from runs and riffles to deep pools where you can fish with flies, lures, or bait. The massive-size trout that live in this stretch are protected, so make sure you know the rules before walking away with your catch.

Boca & Stampede Reservoirs

The two reservoirs are located off Interstate 80 near Truckee in North Lake Tahoe. They are so close together you can easily fish both in the same day. The waters are also large enough to launch a good-sized boat, fishing or recreational kayak, float tube, or other water toys. Come back in the winter for ice fishing in Tahoe!
