Aquatic Invasive Species & Required NV AIS Decal

Non-motorized users on Lake Tahoe are required to purchase a Nevada AIS decal if you plan to enter Nevada waters.

Sale of the NV AIS decal funds (currently $6 for non-motorized) the state aquatic invasive species (AIS) prevention program and applies to watercraft on Lake Tahoe, and also supports enforcement of AIS prevention laws.  The AIS decal is required to be purchased and displayed on all watercraft capable of retaining water that utilize Nevada waters – including canoes and kayaks. For more information on the requirements and to purchase your Nevada AIS decal, visit Nevada Department of Wildlife.

The vessels that fall under the provisions of the NV AIS decal program must properly display it whenever they are in Nevada waters. This includes those watercraft that launch in California and paddle into Nevada. Paddling without the decal could be subject to enforcement action. The NV AIS Decal is separate from the Tahoe Keepers program at this time, so just make it easy and rent AIS-decontaminated gear from a Tahoe paddle shop or outfitter. And, remember to always Clean, Drain and Dry your gear every time!
