Lake Tahoe Macks

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

Fishing has been rated as excellent. Anglers have been fishing the Tahoe City area to Carnelian Bay or the Cal Neva area. anglers have started in at 120 feet of water and moving out as the sun come s up to 250 feet. You need to get your presentation right on the bottom with in a couple feet. Flashers or a dodger with live minnow has been most productive. Many limits have come in from 3-8 pounds, with a few in the 9 to 19 pound class. The Cave Rock launch ramp is open from 6 am to 4 pm. Toplining has been fair near the Logan Shoals area. One angler reported catching a 5 lb brown and a 3 pound rainbow with an F11 rainbow pattern Rapala. That to me would be a good day. Other toplining areas have been Eagle, Rubicon and Deadmans point, The Emerald Bay area has also been productive.
