The fishing at Pyramid Lake has been as sporadic as the weather. True to form during the stormier periods the fishing has been more consistent. Not to say you can’t pick up fish during calm weather it is just at its best when clouds and wind provide some comfort and cover for the trout to feed in closer to shore.

The cooler weather and storms have dispersed the concentrated baitfish and as a result the trout seem to spread out all over the lake. Anglers that are fishing deeper water seem to have greater results. Quite a few larger fish have been caught recently and with another storm approaching, the next week should be really good.

Mike Anderson, our in-house Pyramid Lake guide, has been consistently putting clients on fish during the early morning hours and then later in the day. If you are interested in booking a trip call soon to get on the calendar as it is filling up.

Flies: Dead Pool and Spanish Olive Boobies, Bellyache Minnow #1/0, Deep Six, Midnight Cowboy, Pilot Nymph, Balanced Leech peacock and diablo
