Whether you’re looking for a way to introduce your kids to fishing or want a different kind of date night, head on out the Tahoe Trout Farm. Located in South Lake Tahoe, it’s an easy drive over from your hotel, and it’s a pretty cheap day out! Open in the summer months, May through September, this is a great way to go fishing without “roughing it.” And, on no other river in the area can you get your rod, reel and bait provided for you. Admission is free, but plan to spend money on the fish you catch and a license for everyone over 16. There’s no limit on the number of fish that you catch, and they’ll even package and put your fish on ice for free.
Some words of advice. You might prep your kids for one of the facts of life–if you catch a fish and plan to eat it, someone will need to bonk the fish behind the eyes. Also, this isn’t going to be a challenging sport for you and the gang, but you’re sure to catch a big rainbow trout!
Call 530.541.1491 for more information, or visit the Farm at 1023 Blue Lake Avenue, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
