This webcam, located beside the USGS stream-gaging station on the Truckee River at Tahoe City, gives a panoramic view of the river near the Lake Tahoe Dam and the Fanny Bridge on Highway 89. The gage is approximately 500 feet downstream of the dam and provides continuous monitoring of the outflow from Lake Tahoe, plus certain river and environmental conditions such as air and water temperature, precipitation, and specific conductance.
