Red Lake

Red Lake, in Alpine Co., CA, is an alpine lake with easy fishing access. It is full of Brook Trout and Lahontan Cutthroat Trout. It can be fished from shore, in a float tube or even a boat. It is best fished with an intermediate sinking line or with nymphs under an indicator. There is some dry fly fishing as well. The wildlife around the lake is great. There is usually a Bald Eagle or an Osprey around for aerial entertainment. Red Lake also has some of the best ice fishing in the Lake Tahoe area as it has a paved parking area very close to where you want to place your holes. Let your Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters guide do all of the hard work drilling the holes through the ice. There is nothing like pulling a trout out of a dark abyss in the Sierra Nevada ice.
