Water temps are consistently dropping, heading towards the coldest part of the season. The fishing is good for big fish, numbers are not typically high during December but when anglers do get one to the net it’s typically good quality by means of size. Indicator fishing has been more productive than stripping. It appears that the best time to fish right now is during the warmest of the day, noon to 3-ish.
Anglers Nick and Shawn landed some decent fish this week! As did Utah guide Wade Isaman. The weather is supposed to be mild for a few days, let’s hope for more storms soon!
Water temps have dropped and the shore fishing has turned on. December should be good!
Angler Curt Peterson sent us some great pics of his pontoon trip from last weekend.
And the Chen family had a great day with us on the water yesterday, with Guide Bill Kitchen. Happy Thanksgiving!
The last storm dropped the surface temps clearing out the bait balls to deeper water. Reports have been slow from shore, with boaters and float tubers having better luck. The lake is in a transition phase right now, shore fishing will improve once more winter storms roll in and water temps drop below 55°. Crossing our fingers for more bad weather!
Welcome to the opener Anglers! We hope everyone had a great summer, and that you all have an even better winter going after those massive Cutthroats! Please make sure you follow all Tribal regulations while enjoying your time on the lake. Go get that 20 pounder!
The season opener is just a few weeks away! On Oct. 1 anxious anglers can once again chase that elusive 20 pound lahontan cutthroat. Please make sure you check all Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal regulations before heading out on the water; online permits will be available after Sept. 17, 2018. We encourage visitors to please respect the land, the water, the people, fellow anglers, and the fish. Pack it in-pack it out! We will see you on the shores soon!
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!
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.
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!
The wind brought in some big fish to shore today! More wind in the forecast for tomorrow. Jeff landed this beast during his first trip to Pyramid Lake, NV.
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.
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!
