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!
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!
That time will soon be upon us to search for the elusive 20 pound Lahontan Cutthroat Trout! We’re looking forward to landing these massive cutties on the alkaline lake just north of Reno once again. Our premium custom made ladders are good to go, and the flies are being tied! We’re stocking up on large zebra midge patterns, balanced leeches, woolly buggers, boobies, and popcorn beetles. We were able to land 6 trout over 10 pounds in just 4 weeks last season before the lake closed due to road damage from flooding, and we expect this year to be just as epic. Once the lake re-opened in late February crowds were a bit thick, but the fishing was GOOD. We thank the Tribe for letting us enjoy this amazing fishery!

We had a great weekend of fishing during the first couple of days of April with a group of guys out from Idaho and Boise Valley Fly Fishers. The first day it was tough but we managed to land around 20 between the group of 4, Sunday was great and the group landed 53 cuttys! The group was primarily streamer fishing, and the trout seemed to favor the Popcorn Beetle. It was a great couple of days, here’s a look at our trip:
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!
The fish are in spawn mode and are gathering near shorelines. The fishing is good and numbers and to the net are high! Water temps are up a bit bringing the cutthroat into shore.
Les and Hayden out from Utah landed around 30 fish yesterday from just 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Nice job guys, let’s get some double digits!
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
