Lake Tahoe has been doing well for Mackinaws. I recommend you get out early to take advantage of the calm waters. Best areas have been Cal/Neva point to Dollar point. Start at 80-100 feet of water and progress out as the sun comes up. By 9 am you should be out to 180 to 220 feet of water. Silver and white dodgers with a large live minnow has been most productive. Silver flashers have also been working. Average Mackinaw has been 2- 6 pounds with a few in the 8-10 pound class. The Cave Rock launch ramp will be challenging with the road work they are doing at Cave rock. As of right now the launch is open but is scheduled to close on August 1st and may stay closed up to 30 days or more. Other areas to launch are Tahoe Keys Marina on the south end and Sand Harbor for smaller boats on the east side. Also Tahoe City has the Lake Forest Boat ramp. Top lining has been fair for anglers that fish just before first light around the Cave Rock area to Sand Harbor area. Cave Rock also has shore fishing available. Didn't bring your boat, call Blue Ribbon Fishing Charters at 530-544-6552.
