Salmon Oncorhynchus nerka jumping a beaver dam Damaged beaver dam on Blackwood Creek. Beaver dams are easily crossed by trout and their ponds may serve as critical breaks for wildfires. The beaches of Lake Tahoe are the only known habitat for the rare Lake Tahoe yellowcress Rorippa subumbellata , a plant which grows in the wet sand between low- and high-water marks. As spawning season approaches the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw.

After spawning they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink Neovison vison , bears Ursus americanus , and bald eagles Haliaeetus leucocephalus. The non-native salmon were transplanted from the North Pacific to Lake Tahoe in Forest Service between and Descended from no more than nine individuals, beaver populations on the upper and lower Truckee River had reached a density of 0.

Route 50 named Fallen Leaf Lake after his Indian guide. During the Civil War, Union advocates objected to the name, because Bigler was an ardent secessionist. Due to this, the U. Department of the Interior introduced the name Tahoe in Both names were in use: Mining era[ edit ] Upon discovery of gold in the South Fork of the American River in , thousands of gold seekers going west passed near the basin on their way to the gold fields.

From until about , logging in the basin supplied large timbers to shore up the underground workings of the Comstock mines. The logging was so extensive that loggers cut down almost all of the native forest. The first mail delivery was via a sailboat which took a week to visit each of the lakeside communities. Lake Tahoe Railway and Transportation Company dominated the passenger and mail route after launch of their passenger steamboat Tahoe on 24 June Lake Tahoe Railway and Transportation Company purchased Tallac and rebuilt her as Nevada with length increased by 20 feet 6.

Mail delivery moved ashore after Marian B was lost on 17 May with her owner and the mail clerk attempting mail delivery during a storm. The latter two lie in Glenbrook Bay, but Tahoe sank in deeper water.

Tahoe City was founded in as a resort community for Virginia City. The post-World War II population and building boom, followed by construction of gambling casinos in the Nevada part of the basin during the mids, and completion of the interstate highway links for the Winter Olympics held at Squaw Valley, resulted in a dramatic increase in development within the basin.

From to , the permanent residential population increased from about 10, to greater than 50,, and the summer population grew from about 10, to about 90, This boundary has been disputed since the mid-nineteenth century.

This includes the section of the th meridian that is between the 42nd parallel at the Oregon border to the 39th parallel amid Lake Tahoe, and an oblique line continuing from that point southward to where the Colorado River crosses the 35th parallel. While 43 degrees of longitude west from the Washington Meridian does not really coincide with the degrees longitude west of Greenwich , the Congress was of the belief that the two lines were identical; the former was abandoned nationally in The centuries long dispute that erupted began with boundary discrepancies across many surveys within which were valuable mineral deposits; Nevada also had a wish that California would assent to cede its land east of the pacific crest as had been preauthorized by congress in Houghton and Butler Ives line.

A survey of the California-Oregon border by Daniel G. Major for the General Land Office found the th meridian more than two miles west of the prior line, so it was followed by the survey by Allexey W.

Against initial instructions, Von Schmidt began his survey with the California-Nevada State Boundary Marker [50] which was six-tenths of a mile east of the Houghton-Ives line. When he discovered the Colorado River had shifted at the 35th parallel, he simply changed the endpoint resulting in a survey that was neither straight nor accurate.

Substantial doubts lead congress in to fund the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey to remark the oblique line. Congress does not have the constitutional power to unilaterally move state boundaries. The wealth in natural resources between the Sierra Crest and the eastern-most sections of survey lines created a powerful source for conflict. Major mining sites in the Tahoe area were in disputed territory.

In a striking display of opportunism which ostensibly occurred because the boundary was still "officially" unsurveyed, settlers arrogated parts of California up to the irregular Sierra Crest tens of miles east of the boundaryódefined over six years prioróin an attempt to create Nataqua Territory. An armed skirmish known as the Sagebrush War included gunshots exchanged between militia.

Where a particular coordinate actually lays on the surface of the earth is dependent on the figure of the Earth. In the mid s the Bessel ellipsoid of or the Clarke ellipsoid of were widely used; the Hayford ellipsoid of may later have been used by the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey.

Holding assumptions of the earth back-in-time, modern satellite assisted survey techniques can determine location and transform them onto old ellipsoids to within a centimeter. Celestial navigation [55] [56] techniques by contrast, are accurate up to two-fifths of a mile; uncertainty in the latter was known, but precision then was unobtainable. The legacy of this dispute continues. Of the three interstate streets on the south shore, the border is only tepidly labeled on U.

Route 50 in small font. Unbeknownst to the negotiators,[ citation needed ] this compromise split Lake Tahoe: Beach ownership[ edit ] As Lake Tahoe is a U. Navigable Waterway , [65] [66] under federal jurisdiction , [67] [68] the public is allowed to occupy any watercraft as close to any shore as the craft is navigable.

Neither state has the authority to rescind navigability along the shoreline below the highmark of the waterbody, because it has been granted under federal law through the Enumerated powers of the United States.

The entire waterbody is navigable; it is common for the majority of users to be operating negligible draft one-person craft such as kayaks and standup paddleboards. The yearly maximum is commonly 0. The state of Nevada has not agreed [71] [72] to either a highwater level or datum with California and the US , [73] nor has this waterline been surveyed and marked in either stateómaking this interstate waterway boundary line somewhat arbitrary and disputed.

To be convicted of trespassing , one must be beyond reasonable doubt above the highwater mark, which itself is an arbitrary fact to be found. Recent attempts by Lakefront Homeowners to use piers as "easement fences" to obstruct beach travel are encroaching centuries of established easement and admiralty law. In , the U. Congress and the California and Nevada State Legislatures created a unique compact to share resources and responsibilities.

Congress amended the Compact with public law Schisms between both agencies and local residents have led to the formation of grass-roots organizations that hold to even stricter environmentalism. Vikingsholm was the original settlement on Emerald Bay and included an island teahouse and a room home. However, this storm drain was removed during construction. The new beach now called Lakeview Commons opened in Summer Now, after a half-century of accelerated nitrogen input much of it from direct atmospheric deposition , the lake is phosphorus-limited.

Theodore Swift et al. This represented a decrease of 3. Because of the sensitivity of Truckee River water quality involving two protected species, the cui-ui [93] sucker fish and the Lahontan cutthroat trout , this drainage basin has been studied extensively.

The primary investigations were stimulated by the U. Lake Tahoe never freezes. Dissolved oxygen is relatively high from top to bottom. Analysis of the temperature records in Lake Tahoe has shown that the lake warmed between and at an average rate of 0.

The warming is caused primarily by increasing air temperatures, and secondarily by increasing downward long-wave radiation. The warming trend is reducing the frequency of deep mixing in the lake, and may have important effects on water clarity and nutrient cycling. In ó65, opossum shrimp Mysis diluviana were introduced to enhance the food supply for the introduced Kokanee salmon Oncorhynchus nerka. Since the s, the cladoceran populations have somewhat recovered, but not to former levels.

Since , goldfish have been observed in the lake, where they have grown to "giant size", behaving like an invasive species. They may have descended from former pets which owners dumped or escaped, when used as fishing bait.


The south shore is dominated by the lake's largest city, South Lake Tahoe, California, which adjoins the town of Stateline, Nevada, while Tahoe City, California, is located on the lake's northwest shore.
