Lake Tahoe Fishing Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

Fishing has been a little slow due to weather. With our sunny days, I would get on the lake a first light and fish the Tahoe shelf area located just off of Tahoe City.  The Carnelian Bay to Cal/Neva area should also be productive. Starting in 120 and progressing into deeper waters as the sun rises. Flashers or a dodger with a live minnow is your best presentation. J-Plugs or Rapalas can also be productive in these areas if you get your presentation right on the bottom. Don't forget to bring the juice, like Pro Cure to put on your swim baits.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
