1. Gone Fishing
Have you been telling your son or daughter that you'd take them fishing, but rarely seem to find the time? You're always working and they're always off to soccer or dance practice. Your family vacation at Lake Tahoe will fix that, because freshwater, time and peace are in plentiful supply. You can sports fish during your vacation, or you can catch your supper and teach the kids how to clean a fish. Lake Tahoe is home to some of the best fish in the country. You can find Mackinaw (Lake trout), brown trout, Brook trout, Rainbow trout and even Kokanee salmon. Fishing is permitted year round on Lake Tahoe, but you will need a permit.
