Fall Fishing at Lake Tahoe:

October 4-5 the Kokanee Salmon Festival will be held at Taylor Creek Visitor Center from 10am-4pm. Walk or bike from Camp Richardson to the visitor center where you will learn from Forest Service biologists about the fish who call Lake Tahoe and its rivers home. Walk the beautiful ½ mile loop trail to the creek and see the Kokanee salmon up close. If you prefer to get out on the water and catch your dinner, this is the time of year for salmon, and plenty of charters are available.
