FISHING REPORT DEC. 2018

Water temps are consistently dropping, heading towards the coldest part of the season. The fishing is good for big fish, numbers are not typically high during December but when anglers do get one to the net it’s typically good quality by means of size. Indicator fishing has been more productive than stripping. It appears that the best time to fish right now is during the warmest of the day, noon to 3-ish.

Anglers Nick and Shawn landed some decent fish this week! As did Utah guide Wade Isaman. The weather is supposed to be mild for a few days, let’s hope for more storms soon!

LAKE FISHING TURNS ON

Water temps have dropped and the shore fishing has turned on. December should be good!

Angler Curt Peterson sent us some great pics of his pontoon trip from last weekend.

VETERAN LANDS GREAT FISH

Veteran Scott R. and his wife had a great day on Pyramid Lake yesterday. Scott landed this beautiful chromer on Veteran’s Day! Great job, great fish!

HIT AND MISS, SOME SHORE ACTION

The last few days have produced some decent fish from shore, which is an improvement from the last few weeks. The most likely cause was the drop in temps, which have picked back up today with 62 for the high, and 70 tomorrow. So the long and short is that it’s hit and miss right now, and the deeper you can get your line the better. Temps are expected to drop around Tuesday with lows in the near 30 and into the 20’s, so that should improve shore fishing. Water temps are 58-60 degrees. If you’re headed out to Pyramid try planning your trip around a low pressure system or cold snap. Remember, shore fishing tends to turn OFF on blue bird days. Bring on the crappy weather!

PYRAMID LAKE FISHING REPORT

The last storm dropped the surface temps clearing out the bait balls to deeper water. Reports have been slow from shore, with boaters and float tubers having better luck. The lake is in a transition phase right now, shore fishing will improve once more winter storms roll in and water temps drop below 55°. Crossing our fingers for more bad weather!

MARCH FISHING 2018

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

In early March Brian landed this 20-pounder! We’ve had great clients throughout the month, stay tuned for more pics! 20 lbs

23LBS TO THE NET!

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!
