It’s not skydiving or rock climbing, but the quiet afternoon you spend fishing along the shores of Lake Tahoe might just end up being one of the best parts of your vacation. Bring the kids along to introduce them to this activity, or steal away for a few hours to reconnect with nature and savor the peaceful solitude that only fishing can offer. The largest and deepest lake in the area, Lake Tahoe has an abundance of fish, so it’s likely you’ll be able to bring back something more than just stories about the one that got away when you return to your vacation home at the end of the day. If you’re planning to cast your line in Tahoe’s waters, bear in mind that tributaries are closed from the end of October to the end of June to allow the sport fish population to replenish itself. When nothing but the biggest fish will do, consider taking a fishing charter. These operate year round, and heading out into deeper waters will give you the best chance of snagging the catch of your life. Mountain scenery, light rays dancing on the surface of the lake, fresh air, and an endless supply of fish – what more could you possibly need for a picture perfect Tahoe afternoon?
