    Re: Lake Tahoe Fishing Report - Today !!

    The run off looks to be spectacular, I have heard reports from the other end of the Truckee River into Pyramid as well. They expect that lake to come up 8 feet (close in size to Tahoe). I have not been out with my boat yet as I am restricted in what I can do. We may see you soon......Dave Peterson (aka Jetspray)

    Thumbs up Re: Lake Tahoe Fishing Report - Today !!

    Thanks guys ! Ladies and Gentlemen we have ......." Great fishing right now on the Lake of the Sky " ! The Mackinaw are feeding Heavy due to the spring time runoff nutrients creating vast amounts of shrimp clouds . This last week we have had warmer temperatures up here that have melted off a vast amount of snow at Lake Tahoe . Steady action for the Lake Trout in waters on Tahoe from 80 feet to 250 feet depending in the area on the Lake of the sky . The ramp has not had any impeding snow on it for over a couple weeks ( despite what you may has heard ). Live minnows have a " Hugh " edge over rubber baits when trailed behind a dodger or set of flasher blades . Rainbows, and Browns can also be had as well If you work in shallow tight with small / medium stick baits in brown or rainbow schemes . This action is hit and miss depending on the day and anglers expertise . Cheers and safe boating People ! This my 20th straight year of guiding on Lake Tahoe Year Round and it has been a Gas !

    From the east coast ... never knew that Macks ate crawdads. They eat just about everything else, so I guess it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise! Pretty much the Apex predator in NY Finger Lakes.

    Good to hear you're on the mend. Boating on the big lake may not be the recommended therapy for a back, but it is for the soul.

    Looking forward to more reports.

    Cool Lake Tahoe Fishing Report - Today !!

    Lake Tahoe Fishing Report - Today !! The fishing on Lake Tahoe is awesome as usual , amazing scenery, and Medium winter temperatures . The Ramp at Cave Rock Boat Launch is plowed and clear as of Yesterday . Always be careful of icy conditions on the ramp as some do not drain out the water of the boat trailers before pulling up. The fishing for limits of Mackinaw Lake Trout has been very good to " GREAT " !! Quality Fish are being netted on the PT-109 from 3 to 17 pounds . Dodgers and minnows , flashers and minnows . and Flatfish in chrome or white have been productive as the Mackinaw are feeding to put back the pounds that they lost spawning . " The Trick " is to find out were they are still feeding and are not full. Another technique is to wait until later in the day , as they will start feeding again , as they are feeding hard on full moon nites . Bounce the bottom and speed up every now and then to activate a strike . Cal Neva point , Tahoe City Shelf , and Sugar Pine Point are Stacked with Pods of Large Active Mackinaw . Fresh Bait always help with the bite . The fish are full of shrimp, kokanee salmon , and crawdads . The fillets have been bright orange/ red with a brilliant tastie flavor , cooked on the Barbie with hickory chips ! I have been out with major back operation and fusion , the last couple months . All is good now and I feel much better . So give us a call to fish the Lake of the Sky and hook into some tastie Lake Trout ! Cheers !
