Ladders on Pyramid Lake



We cover all aspects of fishing- specializing in fly fishing, including dry fly fishing, nymphing, streamers, and the dry dropper. Spinning rod techniques are also taught and used if so desired by the client. Guide Nick Jackson is courteous, professional, and patient with the ability to adapt to any skill level from beginner to experienced. For those looking to develop lasting fly fishing skills, Nick recommends continuing to book throughout the season/years. With each visit Nick will develop a workshop specific to your needs with an emphasis on progression and personal skill level of fly fishing, picking up where you left off during your last Pyramid Lake trip. Nick is also known for giving lots of DIY advice for Pyramid Lake for future visits. When Nick is booked or unavailable we partner with several other guides to get you everything you need for your trip to Pyramid.

GEAR and EQUIPMENT (Guided Trips):

All fishing gear, flies, rods, ladders, and lures provided. Bring your own waders, wading boots, and weather appropriate clothing. Lunch, water, and soda provided. Hand warmers are also provided.

Fishing is typically done from shore and from ladders with seats to elevate you from the cold alkaline lake and crashing waves. Best fishing times are when the weather is at it’s worst. During the coldest months the fish head down to deeper, warmer water so the fishing is a bit more challenging. Our favorite months to fish are mid November through February, but the lake is fishable all season long. During warmer months (October, early Nov, late April through June) we recommend using our boat guide in order to access the Lahontan in deeper cooler water. The boat guide is also good if you are looking for a calm blue-bird day of fishing. **

RATES (Guided Trips):

Shore/ladder fishing: 1-2 Anglers $400 full day, $100 more per person up to 4 Anglers after which additional guide(s) are hired. $300 half day, $100 more per person (lunch not included on 1/2 days). *

* a one-time $25 fee per trip will be added due to tribal license increase for guides.

**other guide rates vary when contracted out, the boat guide we refer to is $400/6 hours with number of Anglers varying depending on fly fishing or trolling. Shore guides vary.
