Excellent Mackinaw Fishing! We have been getting limits of Mackinaw Lake Trout all week , from 1 to 15 pounds. Depths have ranged from 60 , 100, 150, 200, and 250 feet depending on the areas fished on the lake . Cal Neva Point , Tahoe City Shelf, Sugar Pine Point , Ski Run Mound , Tahoe Keys Shelf , and Camp Richardson Shelf are all Stacked /loaded with Lake Trout . Surface Water temperatures range from 46 to 48 depending on areas as well .  Bounce the bottom periodically as well . Large fat minnows trailed behind dodgers or flashers is highly effective . Change speeds every now and then to initiate a strike to following fish . We have been getting several browns and rainbows ( from 2 to 5 pounds ) on occasion with the mackinaw in 60 to 150 feet as well . Cave Rock boat Launch is now open 6 am to 8 pm . Law Enforcement is out on the water and They are checking for Boats on the water for safely requirements so be ready . Air temperatures are forecast-ed from lows of 30 degrees to highs of 55 to 68 degrees the next ten days . The lake is full and the launches are in great shape . Cheers !
