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 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!
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!

We had a great weekend of fishing during the first couple of days of April with a group of guys out from Idaho and Boise Valley Fly Fishers. The first day it was tough but we managed to land around 20 between the group of 4, Sunday was great and the group landed 53 cuttys! The group was primarily streamer fishing, and the trout seemed to favor the Popcorn Beetle. It was a great couple of days, here’s a look at our trip:
The fish are in spawn mode and are gathering near shorelines. The fishing is good and numbers and to the net are high! Water temps are up a bit bringing the cutthroat into shore.
Les and Hayden out from Utah landed around 30 fish yesterday from just 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Nice job guys, let’s get some double digits!
