Discover the riches of North America’s biggest Alpine lake. Glenbrook fishing charters will take you out of the oldest settlement in the lofty Sierra Nevada mountains and onto the second deepest lake in the US. You know what that means – plenty of huge fish! Lake Tahoe never freezes, so you can enjoy the stunning settings and incredible fishing all year.
What type of fishing charter is best for me?
Most of the land around the lake is private, so hopping aboard a fishing boat is the perfect way to explore the lake. Head out from the eastern bank and test your skills against Mackinaw (Lake Trout), Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Kokanee Salmon.
Half Day Trips
Beginners and families will relish the chance of a shorter trip. Learn the ropes as you battle it out with some prized fish on light tackle. Find out about trolling as you fish the tops for the bite of Kokanee, and engage in deepline trolling for some huge Lake Trout.
Avid anglers are also welcome aboard for four or five hours to get their fix of fishing. All charters come equipped with sonars to get you on the sweet spots right away, so you won’t waste a second of fishing
Full Day Trips
A full-day trip is the ideal opportunity to show off your skills. As well as trolling, you’ll jig the water tops to target Brown and Cutthroat Trout. If you want to go for the biggest monsters in the lake, then you’ll have to go deep. Go after Mackinaw and Kokanee in depths of up to 200 feet, and fill the boat with delicious fish.
When to go?
The beauty of Lake Tahoe is that you’re in for a treat whenever you visit! From June through September, target Steelheads in the shallows, while you’ll go deep for Mackinaw and Kokanee, engulfed by the luscious forests and crystal clear waters.
Get out in the winter and have the serenity of the lake all to yourself. The fish retreat to the depths, so you’ll deepline troll to entice their bite, using your strength to lift them from the bottom.
In the shoulder seasons, the fishing is just as exciting. Expect some smaller fish close to the shore in spring, while the fall will see you hit the deep waters for Trout and Salmon.
What to Bring
Glenbrook fishing charters run on large boats to get to the deep heart of the lake. These spacious, comfortable vessels boast everything you need for a productive day, including fishing gear, live bait, and toilets.
You’ll need to grab either a California or Nevada fishing license to fish these productive waters. Both are valid across the whole lake, and everyone over 16 must have one.
Other than that, make sure to wrap up warm in the winter and bring plenty of sunscreen in the summer. Bring your own drinks and snacks aboard and make the most of Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore.
