LAKE TAHOE

Lake Tahoe is one of the largest alpine lakes in the world. It is 22 miles long and is an average of 989 feet deep. These deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe are teeming with fish of all kinds for year-round fishing. Even though there are plenty of fish in the lake when fishing Lake Tahoe an experienced Captain is needed to get to the fish.

You can fish from the shore but many of the places that you want to cast from are private property and quite honestly the fish just are not there. In order to find and hook the fish you need a boat and that is where a fishing charter service like Mile High Fishing Charters comes in handy. They will take you to where the fish are.

We had an incredible time with Joby. He was really nice and you can tell he knows fishing, especially when it comes to Lake Tahoe. He went straight across the lake to his "secret" spot. We all caught fish! It was a really fun morning that started with the sunrise. It felt like we had Lake Tahoe all to ourselves! I'd also like to point out that his boat was emaculate! I felt so safe and well taken care of. Thanks Joby, we will definitely return for some more fishing with you.

These guys are professional. I sent them a question on yelp and got an answer back quickly. All my questions were answered. Unfortunately we ran out of time and could not make it on the boat. We will definitely schedule next time we are up in Tahoe.

Booked a trip with Mile High Charters and had captain Justin Cain at the helm. The weather turned out to be 180 degrees from the forecast. We needed up with wind, rain, a changing barometer. All things that could have resulted in a tough trip on the catching side. Justin has this fishery dialed. He put us on active fish in many different places. He worked hard to make sure the trip was memorable. It was and we will be back. Got a nice sack of groceries for the grill in the form of some nice lake trout and had a great time doing it. We will be back. Can't go wrong here with Mile High.

We had a great experience with Mile High and Captain Justin. He was great with the boys and he knew the lake. Justin said he was a South Lake Tahoe native and it showed. He taught us different styles of fishing and also explained why we were doing what we were doing. We left with a bunch of fish and smiles on the boys' faces. Thank you Mile High and Justin!!

Great trip with Joby this morning! Our party of one adult and four kids (10-14 years old) managed to hit our limit of Mackinaw in just a few hours. The boat was comfortable and very tidy. Joby was instructive, patient, and encouraging with the kids in our group. I especially appreciated Joby's knowledge of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area. Really fun trip, we'll certainly do it again!

My family of five had a great time fishing this Summer with Joby. His boat is roomy and top notch. Joby really knows fishing, especially on Lake Tahoe. We all caught some. Joby gave us some great cooking tips that we used later that night. I normally don't enjoy eating fish but they turned out great. I was worried about it being awkward being on a boat with a stranger, but he is very personable and easy to chat with. We will definitely book again next time we visit Tahoe.*plan on booking well ahead of your trip, his schedule is quite full*

These guys were great from reservation to end of charter. I called several and Laura was extremely helpful and offered great advice. First time to Lake Tahoe from Tennessee so I had lots of questions. She knew her stuff and we ended up taking several of her great suggestions. The boat and crew were amazing. Really warm on the ride out and we ended up catching a bunch of fish. We took them to a local restaurant and had them for dinner. What a great experience. If we come back we will certainly do this again.

My wife and I went fishing with Joby last year at this time. I would have left a review earlier but just now created a gmail account and chose this as my first review. What a great experience with a guy who knows the area better than most locals I assume. We took him up on his advice on everything from where to eat to where to fly fish. All worked out to a tee. Thank you so much for everything Joby. We will definitely be back.
