The Fish, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), our specialty, are the main attraction at Lake Tahoe and are prized table fare. Lake Tahoe is the most famous Mackinaw lake in the west. "Macks" from three to five pounds are an everyday occurence, six to ten pounds are quite common, and fish of 20 pounds or larger are a very real possibility on any of our charters. Mackinaw (Lake Trout) are true "Giants of the Deep" and provide very exciting fishing year round on Lake Tahoe. The Rainbows and Browns are seasonal and provide great fishing when available for top-line action.
