Catching Mackinaw 3-5 pound Range!

Lake Tahoe

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Anglers have been reporting good success catching Mackinaw in the 3-5 pound range from boats concentrating in 30-100’ of water. Anglers are also reporting success on rainbow trout toplining within about 200 feet of the shoreline or shore fishing with heavy spoons and casting as far out as possible.  As spring progresses and temperatures rise anglers can expect the rainbow fishing to pick up.
