5/1/14 Lake Tahoe Lake Trout

We fished out of Cave Rock and focused on that side of the lake. We spent a little time fishing the shallows for rainbows before moving to deeper water to target the famous Lake Tahoe Lake Trout. We found piles of fish where we started hooking fish at 190 to 260 feet deep. All our fish were caught on glow in the dark spoons trolling 1.6 mph right on the bottom. As a side note, as you can see from this picture the lake was absolutely like glass. As I came by the Truckee Airport at 4:30 AM the thermometer on my truck said 21 degrees. The same spot on my way home at 3:30 PM it was 69 degrees a 48 degree swing.
