Summer Activities --- Click here to skip to Winter
is one of the most popular seasons here at Lake Tahoe. Summer starts
in the beginning of June and lasts until September and sometimes
into October.Here are some links and other information that may
be helpful or of interest. Remember that many of the Summer activities
continue well into the Fall. In fact the hiking, biking and fishing
only get better during the fall.
This area abounds with great waters to throw a fly at.
If you are unfamiliar with the area we highly recommend hiring a
guide. While there are plenty of destinations where you can find
fish easily if you plan to fish the Truckee or Little Truckee hiring
a guide will make your time on the water much more rewarding. They
don't call the Truckee, "The Toughy" for nothing. We also
recommend booking guides well in advance of your arrival, during
the summer months booking a guide last minute is next to impossible.

Lake Tahoe is a spectacular place to kayak. If you want to get out
on the water, and we recommend that you do, a kayak is one of the
best ways to do it. Sea or touring kayaks are very stable and safe
so anyone can paddle one. On a calm day it will seem as if you are
floating above the bottom of the lake suspended in air. It is a
feeling that you can get only in a kayak.

ATV and 4x4 Tours
Tahoma Meadows is located just 1/2 mile from the Eastern
end of the famous Rubicon OHV trail. This is rated as one of the
knarliest 4x4 trails in the country. If you are planning on doing
any driving on the trail you had better have a pretty heavy duty
4x4. The average rental Ford Explorer will simply not do.
