First Rods of the Season on the Lake

Dave and a friend were the first to fish Sawmill Lake today.  Looking forward to them posting their catches up here soon...

At 8:00 am this morning there was a lot of fish on the raise.  A few new hatches were starting.

With all this beautiful warm weather here at NorthStar at Tahoe, the remaining snow around the lake is melting fast.  Shore fishing should be taking off in the next week or so, for those fly fisherman that would rather stalk their catch.

Can't wait to get the 1,000 lbs of Donaldson Rainbows (a madriver steelhead and a rainbow mix) that we will be putting in the lake Monday June 20, along with all the holdovers.  Should be a great season with all the water!

Opening Day

The road to Sawmill Lake still has a little snow. Hope to be open in 2 to 3 weeks

Best Of The 2010 Season With Sawmill Lake Fly Fishing Northstar-at-Tahoe

High in the Sierras yet incredibly convenient lies Sawmill Lake, a secluded 10 Acre reservoir at Northstar-at-Tahoe surrounded by high country Ponderosa forests.  This pristine hide-away holds hundreds of bright, hard fighting rainbow trout and is reserved for catch and release fly fishing only.  It's a perfect lake to take a float tube or fish from the shore.  To further preserve the lake, there is a maximum of 4 rods allowed to fish at one time.

Half day: $100.00 per rod
Full day : $150.00 per rod
Licensed Guide Service is available!
