Stay Safe, Stay Close to Home

Stay Safe. Stay Close to Home. We recommend exercising close to your home and complying with local and state guidance for not traveling for your recreation needs. If an area is crowded, please search for a less occupied location. 

Tahoe National Forest is a favorite recreation area for fishing.  The Tahoe NF is located within a three hour driving distance from San Francisco Bay Area; it is an hour and a half from Sacramento and about an hour from Reno.  The proximity of these major urban areas to the Tahoe NF with its large and varied number of lakes, rivers, and streams has made recreation and particularly sport fishing a major activity on the Forest.

Opportunities to fish on the Tahoe National are endless.  Waters here are home to rainbow, brook, brown and some areas have Lahontan cutthroat.
