Lake Tahoe Fishing Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

Fishing has been very good for anglers that get on the water before the sun rises. As soon as the sun touches the water the fishing slows down. Mackinaws have been coming in on the north end of the lake just east of Tahoe City. Start on the drop offs in 110 feet of water and move out as the sun starts to rise. Flashers and a minnow right on the bottom has been the most productive. Some kokanee have been showing up around the Camp Richardson area. They have been in located in 160 to 200 feet of water suspended down about 60 to 80 feet. Reminder that the Cave Rock boat ramp will close on August 1st for one to two months.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
