Fisheries

To improve and main lake and stream fish habitats and to reintroduce Lahontan Cutthroat Trout.

Fish have always been an integral part of the Tahoe Basin's aquatic systems and play an important role in the food webs of the Basin's lakes and streams. The goal of TRPA adopted threshold standards for fisheries resources is to improve aquatic habitat important for the growth, reproduction, and perpetuation of existing and threatened fish resources in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Past practices such as grazing, gravel mining, logging, and over-fishing drastically impacted Tahoe's fisheries. Regional programs such as stream habitat restoration projects and limiting peir development in high quality lake habitat aim to improve the Basin's fish habitats.
