Lake Tahoe (Carson City)
Lake Tahoe, Nevada
Lake Tahoe is one of the west’s most spectacular bodies of water, and its cold depths and elusive fish make for some challenging conditions. Deep-water anglers are drawn to the lake’s famously huge mackinaw trout, while all fishermen come for the rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee salmon, which spawn in the fall and create a spectacle as they make their way toward the Truckee River on the lake’s west shore.
Getting There: From Reno, take U.S. 395 south 34 miles to Carson City and the U.S. 50 turnoff. Head west on U.S. 50, 10 miles to the beginning of the loop around Lake Tahoe.
