Lake Tahoe is approaching what should be some of the very best fishing of the year. Mackinaw spawn is just getting started with some large females to 12 pounds being taken. Look for that to improve as we get further out from the full moon. Jigging in 160’ has been productive off of Cave Rock. Trolling stick baits ie. Rapala’s, Storms has been very productive.
