Pyramid Lake 

Pyramid lake has still been a little hit and miss as far as fishing goes. We really need a good storm and some colder weather to break up the monotony of blue skies and little wind. Otherwise fishing deeper beaches with sinking line and dark flies has been working well at the changes of light (dawn and dusk). On the days where the weather picks up fish are coming into shallower water. Balanced leeches under an indicator has been working well in those conditions. Retrieving/stripping flies throughout the day has been the most consistent. 

Weather forecasts are predicting a change for next week. This will really get things firing on all cylinders and we could see some of the biggest fish that this lake can produce. With all the water we have received in the past few years the LCT are healthier and fatter than ever! 

Flies We Suggest: Boobies (Martini Olive, Cat Whisker, Diablo), Pyramid Lake Beetle, Bellyache Minnow, Jans Tui-Chub, Balanced Leech, Holographic Midge
