Sawmill Lake is a Potable Water Source for NCSD, Please... No Swimming, No Dogs in the Lake and is a Pass Thru Hiking Area.

Sawmill Lake Fly Fishing is a secluded 10-acre reservoir surrounded by a High Country Ponderosa Forest. Sawmill Lake is centrally located to the Lake Tahoe Area and amongst the ski runs of Northstar-at-Tahoe. The Lake has large Rainbow Trout as well as a few Brown Trout and is reserved for “Catch & Release” Fly Fishing only. This lake offers a perfect opportunity for float tubing or stalking the shoreline for cruising fish. Most of the fishing is with dry flies and the occasional Nymph or Streamer. Fly Fishing at Sawmill Lake is limited to 4 rods at a time and reservations are required. The Lake can be booked for larger private groups and is great for small Reunions, Bachelor Parties and Corporate Groups. You can reserve a fishing day by phone or email and you must be confirmed by prepayment.
