Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada of the United States. It is located along the border between Nevada and California. This is a very popular tourist area that is known more for snow skiing and boating than fishing, although, fishing is very popular on this lake also. This is one of the most scenic lakes in the country.
This lake is a very deep, cold water lake. Hiring one of the fishing charters on this lake will give you a much better chance to do well on the lake, especially if this will be your first time on the lake.
