Thread: Tahoe and Carson Pass area lakes

  1. #1

    Default Tahoe and Carson Pass area lakes

    I decided to take a ride up the hill to check out the ice-out conditions on some of the lakes and catch a few fish. Adding a tiger trout to my list was one of the objectives. Red Lake is nearly open with a little slush near the dam, Caples is only about 5% open water. Silver Lake is completely ice free. The fish gods were cooperative despite the high winds.

    I didn't see anywhere that Woodman claimed he caught them in California.

    Nate, I'm with you. There are Lions and Tigers and Bears in Cali. The word I heard was that tigers were dumped into Lake Amador. I don't know, yes, no ?

    My concerns are protecting our pure strains of trout.

    From what I've read.....................and I could be wrong....................

    Tiger trout are sterile and can't reproduce in the wild.

    If that's true, then no worries about "protecting our pure strains of trout".

    That is my understanding as well. Tigers are a cross between a brown trout and a brook trout and since that doesn't happen naturally, they are indeed sterile. They exist because of "fish hatchery magic." I've heard them called "Frankenfish" before. I've caught a few in Nevada, but none in CA so I was surprised when I first read this post.
