Can you fish in Lake Tahoe?

Lake Tahoe is open for fishing all year round, although you will need to get a valid fishing license from either California or Nevada to do so legally. It is illegal to fish in Lake Tahoe using live fish as bait unless you have caught them in the lake itself. There are several fishing spots around the lake where anglers cast off from the shore, or you can hire a charter boat or kayak and get out onto the water. The best fishing is in the warmer months of the year.

Can you drink Lake Tahoe water?

It is not recommended to drink directly from the lake, despite its famous cleanness. It is far safer to get your water from restaurants and shops.
