Go fish!


With so much water around, it’s no wonder Reno Tahoe is a premier fishing destination! We’ve got a couple tips for visiting anglers looking for the best Reno and Lake Tahoe fishing.

Pyramid Lake, located on a Paiute Indian Reservation 45 minutes north of Reno, is the end point of the Truckee River. Widely acclaimed as North America’s most beautiful desert lake, it was the world class fishery that brought Pyramid Lake to fame. You can catch Cui-ui which is endemic to the lake or the famous Lohanton Cutthroat. The trout have grown to record sizes and attract fisherman from around the world. For more information on fishing permits and fishing conditions at the lake, please visit their website.

Fishing the Truckee is another popular spot for anglers. The Truckee River offers some of the best water in the west – including a fly-fishing only, catch-and-release section – easily accessible from the Interstate 80 corridor through downtown Reno. With so many excellent places to fish, we want to link you out to a few resources to help aide your decision.

Reno Fly Shop– A locally owned and operated downtown fishing shop, their website will list some local waters and they often release a fishing report.

Nevada Department of Wildlife– As your go-to source for all hunting, fishing, and wildlife in Nevada, this is a great resource to use when looking up permit options and regulations or researching both urban ponds or remote and beautiful fishing holes.
