Come Where You Really Hook em!

Our traditional May 1st opening date will be delayed due to the Coronavirus.  We will be closed until Stay-At-Home mandate to help mitigate the spread of the virus is lifted.  Rules will be enacted regarding social distancing, limiting admittance and large groups.  Mt Lassen fishery has guaranteed availability of their Lightning Golden Trout, catch-able and trophy rainbow trout. Please feel free to call for updates.

After 70 years of operation, family owned-and-operated Tahoe Trout Farm has become a Lake Tahoe tradition. Whether your kids want to catch their first fish or you simply want to have a fresh catch for the grill, this is the place to come for straightforward fishing fun. We keep our two, well-circulated ponds stocked with healthy rainbow trout that love to bite. Bait and tackle are supplied at no extra cost, but if you’d rather use your own tackle, feel free to bring it. No fishing license is required, and all ages can participate. We charge per fish, based on length, and can even clean and pack them on ice for the journey to your grill or kitchen.
