Lake Tahoe Fish Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

This time of years is the best time for larger mackinaw's. Fishing from the Camp Richardson area to Emerald Bay with number 11 to a magnum Rapala in  20 to 60 feet of water around the rocky areas. The Cave Rock to Logan Shoals has also been a productive area. If you want quantity of mac's I would fish the Tahoe shelf area off of Tahoe City to Carnelian Bay. Best results have been with a dodger or a flasher with a 12 to 16 inch leader and a live minnow. Start in the 150 foot depth range and move out to the 220 feet as the sun rises.

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.
