Interesting Facts About Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, and the second deepest in the U.S. Only Crater Lake in Oregon, at 1,932 feet deep, is deeper. If Lake Tahoe was tipped over, it would submerge California under 14.5” of water! The Lake is fed by 63 streams and two hot springs. Its only outlet is the Truckee River at Tahoe City. A average of 335,000,000 gallons of water (1/10 of an inch) evaporates every day—more than is released through the Truckee River! Many drowning victims are never recovered from Lake Tahoe – the cold water at lower depths prevents the formation of gases that would otherwise float them to the surface.

FAQs About Lake Tahoe

How was The Lake formed? The Lake Tahoe Basin was formed by faulting (fractures in the earth's crust allowing blocks of land to rise and sink) occurring over several million years. A fault on the eastern margin created the Carson Range, while the Sierra Nevada rose out of a shallow sea on the western side. From the “up-thrown” fault blocks arose the highest peaks in the Tahoe Basin. A lake formed near the southern and lowest part of the basin, fed by snow, rain, and rivers. The lake rose until it found an outlet near the present town of Truckee. Several active volcanoes poured lava into the basin, eventually damming the outlet, then the waters rose again, several hundred feet higher than the present level. A new outlet was cut, just east of one volcano (the present location of Northstar). Rivers of ice followed the V-shaped stream canyons, carving them, as they moved downward, to smooth U-shaped valleys.

Why is the water so clear?

The sides of the Tahoe Basin are mostly granite, with little topsoil, and therefore few nutrients have washed into The Lake to promote the growth of algae and other organisms that make water murky.

Where does the water go?

The Truckee River, Tahoe's only outlet, flows east through Reno and eventually drains into Pyramid Lake in the Nevada desert. From there, it evaporates back into the atmosphere. Pyramid Lake has no known outlet, though legends abound. Biggest Fish: The biggest fish ever caught in Lake Tahoe, a Mackinaw lake trout, weighed 37 pounds and 6 ounces.

Who might be some Famous Residents:

Famous neighbors include and have included Charles Bronson, Cher, Natalie Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Liza Minelli, Wayne Newton and the Captain and Tennile.

What movies were Filmed at Lake Tahoe:

Indian Love Call, starring Jeanette McDonald, was the first movie to be filmed at Lake Tahoe in the 1920's. Subsequent films have included The Godfather, starring Al Pacino and Marlon Brando and The Bodyguard, filmed at Fallen Leaf Lake, starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston.
