MARCH FISHING 2018

The spawn is in full swing, and the numbers have been sporadic, but with storms come good numbers and also nice size fish.

In early March Brian landed this 20-pounder! We’ve had great clients throughout the month, stay tuned for more pics! 20 lbs

23LBS TO THE NET!

We always have a great time with the Boise Boys out from Boise Valley fly Fishers. Our first day out on the water Austin landed a nice 14 pounder! The head and tail on that thing were MASSIVE.

Austin, 14 lbs

The next morning, Bert’s first cast resulted in a 23 pound lahontan cutthroat trout! It wasn’t too much trouble getting it in, and after subtracting the weight of the net it was exactly 23 lbs. The rest of the day was slow fishing, oddly enough. Sunday was also a bit slow. Welcome to the 20 pound Club Bert!

PYRAMID LAKE FISHING REPORT

This January was been unusually warm and mild for Pyramid Lake, NV. Despite the nice weather, it is quite common for the fishing to be slow this month. If you are able to withstand the long hours and get one to net there’s a good chance it will be a nice one. There are big fish being landed out there!

The forecast is calling for above freezing temps for the next 10 days, which could cause the water temps to rise, which in turn could potentially jump start an early spawn. If you are headed out to the lake for some fishing try an indicator with a variety of midge patterns.

STORM MOVING IN

The weather reports are calling for rain Tuesday of this week, with a larger colder storm moving in on Thursday. The forecast says to expect wind, rain, and snow, which typically means great fishing on Pyramid Lake Nevada. Let’s bundle up and get out there! Storm and waves on Pyramid

FISHING IN THE NEW YEAR

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.

Grant Jackson landed this nice one yesterday from shore, and a storm has moved in today- reports have been good so far!Grant

BIG LAHONTAN CUTTHROAT

This big Lahontan Cutthroat Trout weighed in at 15 pounds after subtracting the net. Dave reeled this monster in and was using a Popcorn Beetle. Nice Cuttie Dave!

FISHING DECEMBER 2018 ON PYRAMID LAKE NV

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!
