Silver Lake is nestled in the beautiful Eldorado National Forest, right off of California Highway 88 south of Lake Tahoe. The lake landscape has spectacular scenery. You can enjoy camping, hiking trails, fishing and boating for the entire family. A great time of year to come to Silver Lake is between June and October.
Silver Lake fishing offers some large rainbow trout, mackinaw lake trout, and brown trout. One of the best places to fish is right across from the boat launch. The boat launch towards the end of summer may be difficult for larger boats, so it may be a good idea to call before you make the drive up the hill, to make sure you can launch your boat if your boat is a larger high profile boat.
