With its elevation of 6,225 feet (1,897 meters) and its location in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lake Tahoe isn’t exactly known for warm waters you’ll want to relax in all day. What draws visitors is the striking setting of bright-blue water against snowcapped peaks, creating an alpine paradise for water sports that keep you (mostly) dry.

Current Fly Fishing - Guide Service

Current Fly Fishing - Guide Service

Being near a river offers many great sights and sounds. Being in the river casting a fly to wild trout is a whole other experience all together. Fly Fishing is a great way to immerse yourself in the outdoors and interact directly with the environment. I offer half day (5 hrs) fly fishing guide trips. Guide trips are for anglers of all levels. If it’s your first time fly fishing we make sure to take the time to teach you the skills at your pace. We go over things like casting the rod, understanding what trout eat and of course how to hook and bring a fish to the net unharmed and then released back into its habit. You will need to provide a California fishing license for each angler over the age of 16, these can be purchased online. All trips are CATCH AND RELEASE and all inclusive with rods, reels, flys, waders and boots.
