Plenty of big fish to be caught around Lake Tahoe

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Picked by readers of USA Today as America’s best lake, big blue Tahoe is an adventure of epic proportions just outside the door of Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge.

Sure there’s plenty of hiking and biking trails to explore and miles of beaches to comb, but what is lurking off the shore and in the deep blue water are stories of great fish caught and some lost.

Lake Tahoe is abundant with lake trout, otherwise known as Mackinaw. These deep lake fish can weigh more than 30 pounds and are quite a thrill to catch. Mickey’s Big Mack Charters launches fishing boats daily to catch these underwater giants.

The Lake Tahoe record for Mackinaw trout is a 37-pound, 6-ounce (44 inches in length) trophy caught way back in 1974. To date, only a handful of Macks have been caught that have weighed 30 pounds or more. The best fishing spots around Lake Tahoe are usually kept as secret as a gold miner’s claim.

But they are out there, waiting to be caught.

Mackinaw isn’t the only fish in the lake. There are plenty of rainbow, brown and brook trout and Kokanee salmon to be caught too, with a little patience and some practical tips, pointers and advice. The daily limit for Lake Tahoe is five trout and two mackinaw.  Most other lakes and streams in the Lake Tahoe Basin have a limit of five trout.

Besides the big Lake, the west and north shore region is home to many streams, rivers and smaller bodies of water. Hang around at one of the tackle shops and get the inside scoop on where to go and check out some local favorite spots in the area.

Note that fishing regulations and license fees vary between California and Nevada and that a license is always required to fish in either state. Before fishing, pick up a current copy of the State Fish and Game regulations available online or at most sporting good stores that sell fishing licenses.
