Fishing in Fallen Leaf Lake and Nearby Waters

There is no shortage of fishing around our California conference center.  Whether you prefer fishing in Fallen Leaf Lake or in a nearby river, you’ll find what you are looking for here.

Fallen Leaf Lake is the second largest lake in the Tahoe area.  The fishing is typically very good and is accessible from the boat dock or by boat.  Rainbows, Mackinaw and Brown Trout are the most frequently caught fish.  You even see an occasional Lahontan Cutthroat Trout.  You can fish Fallen Leaf Lake year round.

If you are looking to fish beyond Fallen Leaf Lake, check out Lake Tahoe which is home to numerous fishing charters and rental boats.  In some places, you can fish from shore (typically on the eastern side).  Lake Tahoe is home to Brown and Rainbow Trout along with Mackinaw and Kokanee Salmon.

Prefer fishing on rivers?  Check out the Upper Truckee River between July 1st and September 30th.  The fishing here tends to be best near the entrance to Lake Tahoe.  Another good river is the Carson River (both the East and West Forks).  The East Fork of the Carson River is the longest un-dammed river in the eastern Sierra and is very scenic.  It is home to Lahotan Cutthroat, Brown and Rainbow Trout and Whitefish.  If you plan to fish the area rivers, contact Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters and Guide Service at (530) 541-8208 for expert advice.

Whether your casting is successful or not, with the fresh air and beatiful views, you’ll have a great timefishing during your stay at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center. Be sure to procure the proper fishing license for the area you are fishing.
