My wife and I went out to Lake Tahoe recently and had a blast. We caught it during off-season, so there were no crowds, and we were able to catch it before all the snow came in. The lake and surrounding forest and mountains are fantastically beautiful. I highly recommend you make the trip some time.
I'll post more on our trip over the next few days. Including some reviews on places went while we were there. We also have some great pictures, that I will link to as well.
I took this photo with my iPhone, and it is one of my favorite pictures from the trip:
