Wildfire Smoke Precautions

Lake Tahoe has been experiencing high levels of wildfire smoke resulting in limited operations or closure.  

  • Continue to monitor our Social media (@TahoeBoating) at Twitter and Facebook  for updates on closures.
  • Prepare for closures by checking AQI ratings on PurpleAir. When Air Quality Index (AQI) ratings are above 250, affected sites will close, but may reopen if conditions significantly improve. 

Optional appointments are available for inspections at Meyers, Spooner and Alpine Meadows inspection stations.

The need for inspections at Lake Tahoe

Watercraft are the largest source for spreading aquatic invasive species (AIS) into new waterways. Mandatory inspections stop aquatic invasive species, such as quagga mussels, BEFORE they enter the water. Please do your part to protect Lake Tahoe and plan ahead for mandatory boat inspections. Invasive species have devastating environmental and economic impacts on industries, communities, and native species populations. Most invasive species do not have predators to keep their populations in balance and, once introduced, are difficult if not impossible to eradicate. What is AIS? Read more here!
