Lake Tahoe Fish Report

Lake Tahoe

by Doug Busey

Fishing has been Great one day and very tough the next . 2 to 6 pound Mackinaw were basic fish netted with some larger specimens netted from 7 to 24 pounds. We have released several larger mack's at 18 , 22 and 24 pounds. Cal Neva Point , Sugar Pine point, Dollar Point and the Tahoe City shelf have been producing with effort . Working and bouncing bottom 100 feet to 250 feet with flashers and minnow, white and chrome dodger and minnow, and flat fish in chrome/ white . Also bringing presentations just under the kokanee schools in 100 to 120 feet in over above 300 feet to oo feet have resulted in some larger monsters, as well as dragging presentations over cliff edges to deep water drop Offs . 90 percent were Lip Hooked and the Hooks came off in the Net . ::)  Cave Rock , Lake Forrest , and Sand Harbor are Open . Fishing is going to be improve as usual and get really good this fall with all this feed in the water this summer getting everything started with a Bang !  Have an Awesome Fall in the High Sierras and be Safe out there People !!
