Located atop Spooner Summit near Lake Tahoe (where Highways 50 and 28 intersect) this 80-acre lake rests in a beautiful mountain meadow. Fed by runoff and small springs, it’s one of the few public waters in Nevada with catch and release regulations. By almost everyone’s strict fly fishing standards, Spooner Lake is in the middle of the pack. Adjustments to your standards are warranted if you factor in the high-elevation splendor and great accessibility for beginning fly fishers. Type of Fish: Primarily rainbow and brown trout. Also the possibility of large cutthroat trout. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use.
