More mild weather and good fishing! January is one of the most underrated months to fish Pyramid. The water temps can make the fishing inconsistent, but this year has been good so far, we even landed another 20 lber! Get out there ~
We’ve had a mild winter on Pyramid Lake Nevada, which often means not great fishing, but not this season! The fishing has been good, with not too bad of crowds- weekends are busier.
Pyramid Lake Lodge is booking accommodations just a few weeks out, so if you are calling in for rooms with no luck keep trying. The store is open and they are doing takeout food.
The weather on the lake has been all over the place, but the good fishing has remained consistent . We will start to see some pre-spawn action with more fish in the shallows soon. Despite popular belief, the recent full moon did not seem to affect the fishing at all. It appears that storms and barometric pressure have more of an effect on the lake fishing than lunar cycles do. We are headed into prime indicator fishing….
We had several happy clients last week!
Way to close out the season Anglers! These beauties were landed by White River Zig Jig Creator Richard Cross’ customer Bill Balasi of Nevada. They were landed on the amazing Zig Jig in a very heavy weight. We swear these jigs can catch fish in any body of water worldwide, tried-and-true!
See you at the opener October 1, thank you for a great season everyone! And a very special THANK YOU to the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe for allowing all of us to experience this amazing fishery!
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!
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!
