Recreation in South Lake Tahoe

Tahoe Trout Farm →  October 6, 2009

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.

From Rubicon Point and other high altitude vista points you can even see over 100 feet straight down into the depths of Lake Tahoe's sapphire blue waters. It truly is something else, and an incredible place to visit during the warmer months.

Be sure to carry spare tubes for this rock-littered, unforgiving, lunatic of a ride.
