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