- "Tahoe" means "water in a high place."
- It is the highest lake of its size in the U.S.
- The water in the lake could cover California with 15 inches.
- The water is 99.9% pure.
- The lake sits at 6,220' in elevation and its max depth is 1645'.
- The largest fish ever caught in the lake was a 37 lb. Mackinaw lake trout. (Shout out to Mike Lemay.)
- The lake was formed by the rise and fall of the earth's crust.
- A nearby ancient volcano formed the high ridge northern boundaries of the lake.
