Summer and Fall at Lake Tahoe

Summer is one of the most popular seasons here at Lake Tahoe. You can usually count on summer starting around June sometime and continuing on into September and October. Here are some links and other information that may be helpful or of interest. Remember that many of the Summer activities continue well into the Fall. In fact the hiking, biking and fishing only get better during the fall.


This area abounds with great waters to throw a fly at. If you're fishing the area for the 1st time we recommend hiring a guide. The Truckee River isn't called "The Toughy" for nothing. Easier fishing can be found south of Tahoma off Carson pass in the West and East Carson Rivers. Desolation wilderness offers some great backcountry fishing.  If you promise to practice catch and release, Dick might even share a spot or 2.

Kayaking & Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Lake Tahoe is a spectacular place to kayak. If you want to get out on the water, and we recommend that you do, a kayak is one of the best ways to do it. Sea or touring kayaks are very stable and safe so anyone can paddle one. On a calm day it will seem as if you are floating above the bottom of the lake suspended in air. It is a feeling that you can get only in a kayak or Sup. Our recommendation is to head down to Sugar Pine Point State park and get a boat right on the beach. - Dick & Ulli

ATV and 4x4 Tours

Tahoma Meadows is located just 1/2 mile from the East end of the famous Rubicon Jeep trail. This is rated as one of the knarliest 4x4 trails in the country. If you are planning on doing any driving on the trail you had better have a pretty heavy duty 4x4. The average rental Ford Explorer wont make it 100 yards beyond the staging area.
