Welcome to January Anglers! The start of the new year has been relatively slow for fishing on Pyramid Lake Nevada. The temperatures have been warm and the weather has been mild, quite unusual for this time of year, but big fish are still being landed to those that are devoted to putting in the hours.
The air temperatures are finally dropping, so we are hoping that means the water temps will drop as well. The fishing throughout November was relatively slow although some big ones were landed in the area.
We’ve had a great time the last few days with Dave McDonald out from Dutch John Utah and Craig Vares out from Chico California. These guys are serious anglers and are more than willing to brave the cold temps and put in the hours. They’ve landed some nice Lahontan Cutties so far!
The warm and calm weather seems to have put a damper on the fishing on Pyramid Lake. Fish are still being landed but it is relatively slow, and anglers are really needing to put their time in to land fish. This lake takes patience. Typically it really turns on after Thanksgiving so let’s hope this year is the same. A nice windy storm rolled in today, and the temperatures dropped around midday so let’s hope that carries over to the water temps. We still like that magic hour, we landed three around dusk!
The temperatures have been around 70 making the fishing on Pyramid Lake a bit slow. Shore fishing is going well during early morning and evening bites. With this warmer weather a boat or float tube during mid day hours are helpful in getting anglers to deeper and colder water where the fish are cruising. We’ve been Landing fish on the popcorn beetle and white Clouser. Let’s hope for some storms coming in and colder weather soon!
The March spawn is on and some big fish are headed into shore on Pyramid Lake Nevada! Captain Bruce A. Smith out of Southern California landed a massive 21 pounder last week and Guide Nick Jackson landed a fat 18 pounder this week. The fishing is good and the storms have made it even better. Get out there with an indicator or a streamer!
The fishing is great right now on Pyramid Lake! We recently had the pleasure of guiding five gentlemen out from Southern Utah. The guys were experienced Anglers and a blast to fish with. They were very dedicated and had 181 fish to the net during their 3 day trip! Including 82 on the third day with a 10+ pounder in there!
Indicator and streamer fishing are both doing well, so get out there and let’s see how many fish you can land! We’d love to see your pictures and please follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
After being closed for just over 5 weeks Pyramid Lake is back open and the fishing is GOOD! Lots of 10+ lb. fish are being landed. Yesterday we landed 25 fish between the 2 of us and had at least 3 doubles on– no big boys but great numbers. We fished the afternoon from 1pm to 5:45pm at one of the open beaches. Right now North Nets to Shot Dog are the only areas open to fishing. Indicator and streamer fishing are both producing– we had a few inches of snow last night, the lake is blown out on some beaches, but the wind looks right for good fishing! The pre-spawn is starting soon so give us a call to book your guided trip on Pyramid Lake, and let’s get you that 20 pounder! 435-901-1921
The Tribe has issued a press release stating that beaches from North Nets to Shot Dog will be open for recreational use starting Saturday February 18th, 2017. Channel 2 News reports the following article:
“Pyramid Lake Opens to Limited Recreational Use
Last week’s floods left the Sutcliffe community of Pyramid Lake with no running water for 7 days, and no sewer for 5 days; the power was also out at times. The main water source for the area broke in several areas and crews had limited access due to continued wet weather. Workers are now able to provide a temporary fix and residents do have running water- boil order is in effect and is not recommended to bathe, or clean clothes in the water until after at least Weds. Roads on both South and North ends of the lake are expected to take 4-6 weeks to repair. The lake is still closed to all fishing and boating activities- we are all hoping for an update from the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe as soon as conditions are stable enough to reopen the lake. Follow us on Facebook for more updates.
We have heard reports that it’s possible to get to/from town.
Fishing on the lake could be good for those that have access to it! Some areas of the lake are blown out from nearby creeks and the Truckee river overflow. Good luck, and stay safe anglers! Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for more up to date news of Pyramid Lake, NV. @pyramidlakeguides
