80 Is a interstate. More trucks nice road. 50 Is a smaller road, Some 2 lane some 4 lane. Easy tow either direction.

Make sure your entire boat is clean and DRY. The Econazis take full advantage of flatlanders attempting to use their precious water. By the time you pay for their inspection and outrageous launch fee's you'll be out $ 150.00 bucks before you see the water. Two years ago regular gas at Tahoe City Chevron was $ 6.99 a gallon. My wife and I once spent at least one and some years two weeks in the Tahoe Keys each summer, since those greedy pricks decided to use the mussel issue as an income enhancement I now take my boating dollars where they are appreciated. That extra fee you paid, and that cute little trailer sticker next to your CF numbers don't mean squat to those high sierra A holes. Told me my boat needed to be decontaminated cause a few drops of water were in the bottom of my boat, charged me an extra 40 bucks to run 140 degree water through my engine, my engine runs 160 all day long, so what good does 140 water do?. You will enjoy the water, once all the extortion money has been paid. I am all for taking all the steps necessary to stop the spread of the quagga and zebra mussels, however I have a problem with organizations attempting to make a profit off of an unfortunate situation.

There's plenty of water right now, Lake level is high after a bumper winter so no real issues launching anywhere, but in my experience (27' Magnum) the Tahoe City / Lake Forest Coastguard ramp is by far the easiest for access, launch & recovery with ample parking IF you get there early in the day! I would say I80 and then 89 is by far the easier haul, but I live in Reno. A number of boat in restaurants make for a great lunch experience.
