Taylor Creek Visitor Center Fall Fish Festival canceled

Written by sierrarecmagazine

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif., Sep. 30, 2021 – Due to ongoing drought conditions and low water levels at Fallen Leaf Lake causing dry conditions in Taylor Creek, the Fall Fish Festival will be canceled this year. With low water flow in Taylor Creek, it is expected that the Kokanee salmon will not spawn in the creek this year. However, the Kokanee have been known to find other creeks to swim up and spawn in and are known to return to Taylor Creek the following year when conditions allow.

The Taylor Creek area will be open for the public to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. The Taylor Creek Visitor Center will provide outdoor visitor information on Saturdays and Sundays through October 17, but the Stream Profile Chamber will remain closed due to vandalism.
