Lake Tahoe Fishing
Resting at 6,230 feet elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Lake Tahoe is approximately 22 miles long, 12 miles wide and 72 miles around. Tahoe is famous for crystal clear waters, and beautiful mackinaw and kokanee salmon. The best time to fish for makinaw is in the winter. In summer, you'll want to go for the kokonee salmon. "Macks" weighing 5- 10 lbs make the most delicious eating, in our opinion. Some macks may be found in shallow water during early season but most are found at the 200 foot level. A guide is highly recommended if you are fishing for mackinaw for the first time. The charter fishing expedition operators have morning and afternoon hours. Toplining and shore fishing is slow overall.
