PYRAMID LAKE SEASON OPENER

The search for the massive Lahontan Pilot Peak Cutthroat Trout continues, but it will be a month or two before water temps are cool enough to bring these world record cutties into shore. In the meantime, please use caution in your water crafts- if the wind picks up get to shore and throw a zig jig instead! (Creator of the Zig Jig, Richard Cross, will be at the lake this week- keep an eye out for this legendary angler!)

We hope you all have a fun and safe opener out at the lake! We are so excited to see what big fish this season will bring, hoping to see more 20 pounders and even bigger….

Happy fishing everyone, and please remember to respect the Tribe and the lake, and follow all regulations!

WORLD RECORD LAHONTAN CUTTHROAT TROUT (Replica)

This replica of the world’s largest cutthroat trout is located in Crosby Lodge at Pyramid Lake Nevada. The cuttie was a Pilot Peak strain of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and weighed in at 41 pounds in the year 1925. Some fish were unofficially recorded at closer to 60 pounds in the ’20’s and 30’s. After the strain went extinct for several decades, it was rediscovered in a mountain stream and reintroduced by biologists in 2006. The trout are only ten years old so we are hoping to see more record breakers in the coming years. The native Cui-ui fish is a favorite meal for these massive Lahontan cutties. ¬†Join us for the season opener October 1, 2016!
