Fly Fishing in Lake Tahoe

Finding guides for fly fishing Lake Tahoe doesn't have to be difficult. Check out these two highly recommended guides.

There are multiple fly fishing services and fantastic guides in Lake Tahoe. You will find the high sierra rivers and tributaries can produce some of the best fly fishing in the States. Below are a couple of fishing companies that offer fly fishing services in the Tahoe area. Previous fly fishing experience is recommended, but not necessary, as they will teach you how to whip the fly.

Truckee River Outfitters - The headquarters for Truckee River Outfitters is located in downtown Truckee; however, their knowledgeable guides will take you to more than just the Truckee River. Wherever the fish are biting, Truckee River Outfitters will take you ensuring that you are on the fish with the right fly to make the most of your day.

Salmon Striper Fishing - Salmon Striper Fishing uses both conventional and fly fishing rods for their trips. It is your preference as to what type of fishing you want to do; however, I would definitely listen to the guides who have the scoop on what is biting where, so you can make the most of your trip. Check their website for more information and be sure to book well in advance as they can be busy during the hot seasons.

"What a great resource I have found in your website. I recently moved to the Carson City area and have been wondering where to find info on Lake Tahoe Entertainment and Charter Fishing services. I found it all and MORE right here. Thanks."
Scott Kelly

"We went on a fishing trip with Leonard O'Malley from Zephyr Cove just after the 4th, Wow, did we catch fish. I have to tell you that he really knows how to catch 'em. We caught 15 Mackinaw and Kokanee in combination. The soft mouthed Kokanee got off the hook 11 times but we boated enough to have a very nice dinner of Land Locked Sockeye Salmon.
Thank you for this website, very informative..."
