Johnson Tackle and Guide Service is the oldest guide service in the Lake Tahoe area. Randy Johnson, owner, spends over 200 days in the water teaching and guiding the sport of fly fishing. He has also been creating and designing flies for over 20 years, with many flies becoming standard in the Tahoe Truckee area.

Lake Tahoe is well known for its fine top lining for rainbows and Brown Trout. There has been much said about the fine line fishing that the Tahoe area has to offer. Within 20 square miles you will find some of the finest waters in the state. From the lakes of the Truckee River area, to the areas in and around Desolation Wilderness with its high Alpine lakes, to smaller streams, making for a host of different situations to find and master on a fly rod.
