Lake Tahoe Fishing Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

The mackinaw bite has been very good fishing the Cal Neva Carnelian Bay area. 150 to 240 feet of water has been most productive.  Average size has been 2 -6 pounds. For those new to the area, all motorized watercraft require an inspection for AIS prior to launching into Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake and Donner lakes. This is to prevent invasive species like the quagga mussels and the New Zealand mudsnails from entering our lakes. Always remember to clean, drain and dry your vessel every time you leave a body of water. The inspection stations will be at highway 89 and 50 in Myers and at highway 89 , off Alpine Meadows Road north of Tahoe City. They will also be at the junction of highway 50 and 28 in Douglas County. For more fishing information call Blue Ribbon Fishing Charters at 530-544-6552.

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.
