Third Creek and Incline Creek on the North Shore are, according to the UNR, PHD Geneticist Dr. Galland who's studied all 63 Lake Tahoe streams, "The most genetically diverse and important streams feeding Lake Tahoe."
Friends Of Third Creek's focus is to help Lake Tahoe's watershed and fisheries through community participation, education, and by proactively stewarding the direction of environmental interaction.
We are in the process of becoming a non-profit 501c-3 organization. Our amazing team of regular and part-time volunteers are committed to assisting in the health of Lake Tahoe tributaries for the return of Lake Tahoe's only native trout, the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (LCT).
Our board of advisors is comprised of long term community leaders, local biologists, and fisheries research professionals.

Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in the North Shore's watershed area, we formed our organization to assist with sensible solutions to the challenges of today's public/government/environmental interface. Our group started collaborating with wildlife studies related to North Shore streams in 2016. With our aid the combined 8 year effort has netted close to 200,000 fertilized Wild Lake Tahoe Rainbow Trout eggs,.
