Lake Tahoe Fishing Charters

Maybe the best way to experience Lake Tahoe is to charter a fishing boat with a captain. Most of the fishing charter boats also do tours, such as a picnic to Emerald Bay.

Either way, it’s great family fun!

Top boat charter companies, like Nor-Cal Charters, offer trips for one or two, as well as chartering the entire boat for up to six comfortably. Some spectacular larger boats are also available.

When selecting a charter, be sure to check out the captain as well as the boat. The best charters are with licensed captains who are friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

If you want to pilot your own boat, see Boat Rentals. If you want to join other people on a larger boat, see Cruises & Boat Rides.
