Lake Tahoe Fishing Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

The fishing was a little slow with the full moon.  Anglers have been getting 3-10 fish per trip. Gene St Denis reported he has been catching mackinaw in the 3 to 6 pound class.  He has also caught a few rainbows in the 4 to 5 pound class.  The fish have been healthy and fat. Best areas have been the Tahoe shelf or Camp Richardson.  The bigger macs are chasing the schools of kokanee salmon that are getting ready to come up Taylor Creek and the surrounding tributaries.  For more 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.
