Fishing has been good for Mackinaw 1 to 8 lbs. North shore shelves, South shore shelves are heavily loaded, with prespawning Macks. The full moon has slowed the fishing bite somewhat as they are stuffed with shrimp and crawdads. Cal Neva point, Dollar shelf, Agate bay, Ski Run shelf, Tahoe Keys shelf and Cave Rock shelf are loaded with mature Mackinaw as well. 90 to 250 ft. are the stacked depths depending on the area and thermal springs. Slow bait presentations with flashers and minnows or dodgers and minnows bounced off the bottom every now and then. Lures consisting of flat fish and stick baits can be successful at times as well.
