Donner Lake FishingWith kokanee salmon and plenty of Mackinaw, brown and rainbow trout, Donner Lake is a prime attraction for serious and casual anglers alike. Resting 2 miles west of Truckee at an elevation of 5,969 feet, this dazzling lake has a reputation for yielding much larger Mackinaw than nearby Lake Tahoe. It also provides a gorgeous backdrop for a relaxing afternoon in one of the country's most beautiful natural settings.
