LATE SEASON FISH, SOUTH NETS OPEN

It’s late in the season and the Lahontan cutties are headed into colder water, but nice fish are still being landed if you are willing to put in the work. Grant, Evan, and Jack went out this weekend after College finals and landed some nice beauties.

South Nets is now open, Washout and Monument are still closed. Get out there while you can- we thank you all for a great season. See you in Fall, enjoy your Summer everyone! We hope to see you at the Green River Utah in the meantime…..🎣

LAHONTAN MONSTERS

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!

MARCH FISHING ON PYRAMID LAKE

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!

TWO 15 LB FISH IN THE NET TODAY

Guides Nick Jackson and Ryan Dangerfield both landed 15 pound Pilot Peak Cutthroats on Pyramid Lake Nevada this afternoon. Nick was using an Echo reel and Echo Badass Glass rod. Ryan landed his massive trout on a Sage rod and Galvan reel set up. The experienced anglers were both stripping leech patterns, and landed the fish about 20 minutes apart during the magic hour just before dusk.

Ryan and Nick are fishing guides along side each other year round- both guide on the Green River Utah during summers then head out to Nevada for this amazing fishery in winters. This is Nick’s 2nd season on Pyramid, and is going into season 7 this spring on the Green. Ryan relocated to Carson City this winter to get his feet wet guiding on Pyramid, and will enjoy his 2nd season guiding on the Green come April.

FISHING REPORT PYRAMID LAKE

The last few days were very slow on Pyramid Lake, but these anglers stuck it out and it paid off! Bob G. out of Virginia landed his first fish on a fly rod this morning, it weighed in at 13.2 lbs. and was caught on Doug’s Original Popcorn Beetle. BOB

Utah angler Rob Peterson landed his first Lahontan Cutthroat on a black booby on Sunday just before dusk. Nice chromer! ROB

Guide Nick Jackson caught a nice one on Sunday as well, weighing in at 11 lbs. Great job guys! NICK

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.

ALGAE BLOOM ON PYRAMID LAKE, NV

The lake is turning over, and there is a large algae bloom filling most of the shore lines. We are hoping for a storm in the next few days to clear the fine green muck out. Fishing has been hit or miss the last week. The winds are picking up today so that is a good sign!

2016 PYRAMID LAKE SEASON OFF TO A GREAT START

The season is off to a great start! The water temps are still warm, the fish are keying in on Tui Chub bait balls- people are locating fish mainly from float-tubes and a few are catching some from shore. Try using a fish-finder to locate the cutties in deeper water, or follow the birds!

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!
