Water temps are consistently dropping, heading towards the coldest part of the season. The fishing is good for big fish, numbers are not typically high during December but when anglers do get one to the net it’s typically good quality by means of size. Indicator fishing has been more productive than stripping. It appears that the best time to fish right now is during the warmest of the day, noon to 3-ish.
Anglers Nick and Shawn landed some decent fish this week! As did Utah guide Wade Isaman. The weather is supposed to be mild for a few days, let’s hope for more storms soon!
The last few days have produced some decent fish from shore, which is an improvement from the last few weeks. The most likely cause was the drop in temps, which have picked back up today with 62 for the high, and 70 tomorrow. So the long and short is that it’s hit and miss right now, and the deeper you can get your line the better. Temps are expected to drop around Tuesday with lows in the near 30 and into the 20’s, so that should improve shore fishing. Water temps are 58-60 degrees. If you’re headed out to Pyramid try planning your trip around a low pressure system or cold snap. Remember, shore fishing tends to turn OFF on blue bird days. Bring on the crappy weather!
The last storm dropped the surface temps clearing out the bait balls to deeper water. Reports have been slow from shore, with boaters and float tubers having better luck. The lake is in a transition phase right now, shore fishing will improve once more winter storms roll in and water temps drop below 55°. Crossing our fingers for more bad weather!
