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.
