March Madness on Pyramid Lake, NV

The guys from Iowa landed near 30 fish this past Monday on Pyramid Lake. Some nice, colorful Pyramid Lake strains (aka Summit Lake strain), and a beautiful Pilot Peak were among the many fish landed. Nice job guys- toughing out the wind and cold! March is a GREAT time to fish Pyramid for the Lahontan Cutthroat- there are several reports of pod sightings right along the shoreline. Get out there!

OVER 15 CUTTHROAT LANDED LAST SATURDAY

Guide Nick Jackson had the opportunity to mentor three young, ambitious anglers from California last Saturday on Pyramid Lake, NV. Between the three they caught over 15 fish on a 300 grain sink tip line with Doug’s Popcorn Beetle and a black boobie as flies.

Among the cutthroat caught were two Pilot Peak Strain and weighed in at just under 10 pounds.

LATEST FISHING REPORTS JAN. 2016

Happy New Year! As January brings in the cold weather also brings the colder water. Luckily the fish are still sticking around. There have been recent reports of 18-20 lb. fish being caught at South Nets and at Dago. Indicator fishing is the preferred method lately- try a balanced leech, snow cone, or Doug’s Popcorn Beetle.

15 lbs. on Popcorn Beetle

Bo Johnson of Salt Lake City, UT landed this nice 15 lb. fish just off of North Nets, Pyramid Lake, NV. It bit on Doug Ouellette’s Original Popcorn Beetle, with a Cheeky Reel. They waded out a few feet off of shore around 2 pm and by sundown had this fish on the line. The bite seems to really spark up right around dusk. Try this popcorn beetle, or a balanced leech.  bo
