WINTER IS HERE

It’s October 1, 2017 and that means the Pyramid Lake fishing season is now open! The water temps are cooling off around 65 degrees, and the lake is turning over with moss and algae. Once that green clears out the shore fishing should be phenomenal! The bait balls are dissipating but can still be found. The shores are crowded with anglers anxious to get out on the alkaline lake.

Be sure to read Tribal regulations before heading out to chase those massive Lahontan cutties. Be respectful, crimp your barbs, park at least 100 feet from shore, use only artificial flies and lures, know your keep limits, clean up after yourselves, and stay warm!

2016 PYRAMID LAKE SEASON OFF TO A GREAT START

The season is off to a great start! The water temps are still warm, the fish are keying in on Tui Chub bait balls- people are locating fish mainly from float-tubes and a few are catching some from shore. Try using a fish-finder to locate the cutties in deeper water, or follow the birds!
