Fishing

Besides the big Lake, the North Lake Tahoe 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, check out our list for some of our favorite spots in the area, or our list of campgrounds to see where overnight trips are possible. Note that fishing regulations and license fees vary between California and Nevada and that a license is always required to fish in either state.
