This January has fished well! In January 2018 we saw mild weather with warm temps making the fishing slow. January 2017 we had flooding resulting in lake closure for 6 weeks. This year the storms have been consistent making for decent fishing. Similar to December daily numbers are not at their highest but quality by means of size make up for it; big fish are being caught. Follow the storms!
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.
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 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 warm and calm weather seems to have put a damper on the fishing on Pyramid Lake. Fish are still being landed but it is relatively slow, and anglers are really needing to put their time in to land fish. This lake takes patience. Typically it really turns on after Thanksgiving so let’s hope this year is the same. A nice windy storm rolled in today, and the temperatures dropped around midday so let’s hope that carries over to the water temps. We still like that magic hour, we landed three around dusk!
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!
The season is underway and reports are good. Float tubers are doing well with their lines in deeper waters. The lake has a large algae bloom right now, once it clears out the shore fishing should get really good!
