Carp At Lake Tahoe
Posted 13 April 2012 - 02:32 PM
Q..... Can anybody provide info on Carp in the Lake or any of the many lakes in the area??
The best I've been able to find so far is that ..yes Carp exist in the big lake..but no answers as to what type, where is best place to fish and what is size potential.
The big lake is huge (40+ miles around) and 1000+ feet deep.
Sooo...I was wondering if there are Carp in any of the much smaller lakes within the basin area.
Tried talking to fishermen last week when I was there for a skiing trip...the locals never go after Carp, so local info is marginal at best. The best so far is that Carp have been known near the Tunnel on Rt 50 NV side of the lake.

If you have an inflatable you can paddle on top of the swim you have chummed and look for the bait you have put out. if its gone you know you have chosen the right spot. Good luck!
Oftimes, at an unfamiliar water, I will place a few lbs of soaked maize in the water near the shoreline at dusk. [If desired, this can be done in conjunction with a more general chumming campaign.] The water should be as deep as possible but shallow enough to allow you to see the maize when standing on the shoreline. I like to do this just before dark to minimize the chance that other, non-aquatic, corn eaters will eat the maize. Return in the morning, preferably just before dawn, and check status. If the maize is gone, the carp probably ate it. If its still there, there are probably no/few carp around that spot. When the corn is gone, I have never failed to catch carp at that location.
