Hi Gene - Thanks for keeping the Curent Tahoe Fishing info flowing. Is Lake Forest the ramp at the North end by the Coast Gaurd? It's snowing at 1700'. Has been for several hours. This cold snap, with water should turn on some foothill lakes, and hopefully the Sacramento River as well.
Fish On,

* *140 mph winds last lite on ridges and 30 to 80 mph at lake level. Storm moved inland over oregon instead of dropping down and slamming us. Winds still very strong close to those numbers. Winter White Out Conditions right now , today. Snow was the main change as we only got 3-4 inchs last nite and it looks like possibly 3 to 4 more today and the storm will pass thru quickly by 6:00pm this evening. Never made it out to fish yesterday as the winds came up early and I like myself and avoided 4 to 8 foot Massive Swells that looked like someone turned on the throttle as I looked at them so, I came home. I know ... a real angler would have gone for those Big Macks and Browns !!! Instead I came home to fix Our Own Frozen Laundry Water Lines..... winter has a way of touching us ALL *:-X !!! Echo Summit is haveing stop , wait ,and be escorted sessions , as visability is 0 *to not much ( even a plow drove off hwy this morning !!). Donner Pass Interstate 80 is closed .... they are still trieing to find it. They are saying that tonite will calm down alot and give a real good time to clean roadways/ hyw 50/80 real good for the saturday morning and sunday skier rush.*Tomarrow, saturday is going to be much nicer and sunday ( Fishing!! *Fishing !! * :D). Monday something else is moving in. * Heating up a large cup of gourme Dark Roast Aribaca bean Coffee right now and I think that a little Baileys is going in !! * * Aloha !!! * *gst :P ::) :-? :o ;) :)

Storm moving thru fast, lots of blue skys with white solid clouds . winds have deceased alot and they are calling for a "dead Spot in the Tahoe Basin tomarrow" with calm winds and mostly sunny ,brisk , highs 29 and lows last nite 1 tonite 14 degees , so alaskan front has moved creating a clear "eddy" high for saturday only . So right now it looks outside and in forecast from 8 sources Saturday will a Birllantly spectacular Day in Lake Tahoe and The Imediate Area of the High Sierra Moutains and Lakes ( that are not frozen) . So, get out there and Get' ter Done Fishing or Skiing !! Sunday a storm front comes in and the morning should be ok then the winds start PM as system moves in. Scattered systems next few days. Ehco Summit Free and Clear now . Boaters if you have that feeling then now might be your time. I had Foks Cancel ( thought todays weather is tomarrows)and you Know what I Do on Perfect fishing Saturdays ::) following a lot of snow blowing and Wind Hold ........(It's Time fo solo fish'n !!)!!! * *Aloha !!! gst * *:) ;) 8-) :o
