Lake Tahoe is well known for its sport fishing where you can catch large Mackinaw Trout and Kokanee Salmon. It’s a great way to get on the lake and have an adventure with family and friends.
Tahoe Sport Fishing has Lake Tahoe’s largest fishing fleet and their captains are experienced in trolling, drifting and jigging and they operate year-round. Their experience of the lake’s hot spots can almost guarantee you’ll catch a fish.
Our day started early and there was a chill in the air as we went out with friends. There were plenty of kids aboard and the Prophet’s Captain John welcomed them inside whenever they needed to warm up or just hang out.
We were all novices but with the help of the crew we were quickly fishing and reeling in Mackinaw Trout after Mackinaw Trout! As we were fishing off the bottom of the Lake, some of the fish we pulled in would bloat up due to their decompression.
After a half day on the Lake where we all caught nearly a dozen fish we headed up to the Blue Angel Café. The Blue Angel is a longtime locals' favorite in South Lake Tahoe known for great food and atmosphere. They took our fish and cooked it to order with a variety of preparations. It was served family style with a seasonal house green salad and a choice of pasta.
You’ve heard of farm-to-fork, this is lake-to-fork!
If you are looking for a fun activity for the whole family, head out onto the lake and catch your dinner at the same time!
