NICE LAHONTAN CUTTHROAT

Guide Nick Jackson had the day off this Saturday, so what other thing to do but go fishing! He met up with some fellow anglers and headed out to one of their favorite beaches on Pyramid Lake. Between the group there were over a dozen fish landed, with this nice Summit Lake strain weighing in around 8 lbs. caught on a tui chub pattern by Nick Jackson of Pyramid Lake Guides.

AFTERNOON BITE ON PYRAMID LAKE

If you’re looking to fish for just an hour or two try heading out between 3:30-5:00pm ish. The afternoon bite is typically productive! We landed both Summit Lake and Pilot Peak strains of Lahontan Cutthroats two consecutive days in a row; using white and chartreuse tadpoles and Doug’s Original Popcorn Beetle.

PYRAMID LAKE SEASON OPENER

The search for the massive Lahontan Pilot Peak Cutthroat Trout continues, but it will be a month or two before water temps are cool enough to bring these world record cutties into shore. In the meantime, please use caution in your water crafts- if the wind picks up get to shore and throw a zig jig instead! (Creator of the Zig Jig, Richard Cross, will be at the lake this week- keep an eye out for this legendary angler!)

We hope you all have a fun and safe opener out at the lake! We are so excited to see what big fish this season will bring, hoping to see more 20 pounders and even bigger….

Happy fishing everyone, and please remember to respect the Tribe and the lake, and follow all regulations!
