Fish sculpture to be dismantled

Tahoe City fish sculpture

The Tahoe City Trout Sculpture that has sat in the wye at the intersections of Highways 89 and 28 since 1977 will soon be dismantled before construction of a roundabout begins as part of the Highway 89 realignment project.

Representatives of the SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project and the North Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce stated in a press release that the agencies “were unable to reach a reasonable agreement with Mr. John Betts, the creator of the Tahoe City Trout Statue, to find a place for the relocation of the statue within the project area.”
