SEASON OPENER OCT. 1, 2017

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!

Contact us to book your guided trip on Pyramid Lake, Nevada– our days are filling up fast! Our outfitter is located right on the lake for your convenience. Lunch, ladders, and gear are always included. Check out our Guided Trips page for more info. or call 801-706-7836.
