JIG FISHING ON PYRAMID LAKE

We are in the midst of our trip with spin fishermen Randy, Dave, and Mike. The fishing has been pretty good! Friday’s storm brought great fishing and we landed several dozen. Despite the nasty weather Saturday morning was slow, and then picked up in the afternoon with great numbers. We will see how Sunday and Monday end up! More storms in the forecast….

PYRAMID LAKE FISHING REPORT

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.

STORM MOVING IN

The weather reports are calling for rain Tuesday of this week, with a larger colder storm moving in on Thursday. The forecast says to expect wind, rain, and snow, which typically means great fishing on Pyramid Lake Nevada. Let’s bundle up and get out there!¬†Storm and waves on Pyramid

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!

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!
