Lake Tahoe is enjoying abundance. Winter storms resulted in the wettest year on record in the Sierra Nevada. Here are some suggestions for enjoying spring’s bounty in South Lake Tahoe.

Water, water, everywhere, and there’s plenty to drink, marvel at, and more. It’s time to play at Lake Tahoe.

  1. Water runs downhill and makes spectacular waterfalls. Splash through the mud puddles like a kid and marvel in the spectacular power show that will be going on around the lake. (We recap some of the best for you in our top waterfall hikes blog. Van Sickle Bi-State Park, located right behind the hotel, Rim Trail Connector trail also has a waterfall.)
  2. Before everyone gets their power vessels in the water, take advantage of the crystal calm waters and kayak or paddleboard the lake. Get a map of the Lake Tahoe Water Trail and take off. Lake Tahoe is officially above its natural rim so there is plenty of water to explore.
  3. Spring showers bring riots of color. The wildflower season should be longer than normal this year. Tahoe’s first blooms will be found at lake level as the high country still has some melting to do.
  4. Go fishing. Mackinaw season is open year-round in Lake Tahoe and they are reeling in some big ones. Check out the latest catch with Mile High Fishing Charters.
