There is no finer place to set up a base camp for some fishing in the Sierra Nevada than Nevada City, California. A small, historic town of 2,500 people, Nevada City is perfectly situated on the Sierra’s western slope. Within easy reach of the wonderful waters that flow through the Tahoe National Forest and lands nearby. A climate moderated by a wide range of elevations makes fishing possible twelve months out of the year in either the Valley or Sierra fishing districts, the borders of which Nevada City straddles. Depending on where you go and during what season, species range from rainbow or German brown trout (with some steelhead, brook and mackinaw) to bass, kokanee salmon, and pan fish.
