Sagehen Creek

Off Hwy. 89, north of I-80. Small, wild rainbow, brook and brown trout in reaches of the creek. Above Hwy 89 bridge, regulations apply. Sagehen Creek is one of the many creeks that drain the Prosser area watershed into the Stampede Reservoir in the Tahoe National Forest north of Truckee. Technically it is not really on Donner Summit, but because it is relatively low and on the east side of the summit, the snow is gone there relatively early in the season compared to the summit. This makes it an excellent springtime hike when the summit hiking trails are still buried in snow. If your feet are itching for a walk on terra firma, this can by your first hike of the season. The best time to do this hike is from the middle of May to the end of June depending on the snow fall. Usually by the start of July many of the flowers have come and gone. -OnTheSummit
