Pyramid saw some of the best fishing of the year over the last week as the last storm system pushed through dropping a dusting of snow at lake level. Just a few days ago local angler JD Richey got to hand a 27-pound fish, the biggest fish thus far this year, but there’s no doubt that there’s a good possibility of larger fish swimming around in this incredible lake, so don’t miss you shot at a world record trout. As We’ve stated before, February is THE month for you best shot at a mega. Most methods of fishing are working well right now and it pays to mix up your presentation when spending the day out here to see what the fish best respond to.

We’ve been getting good numbers of fish using an indicator paired with a balanced leech and a midge, primarily focusing on depths from 4-8 feet. The strip bite has also stayed steady most of the day and using midnight cowboys or other buggers and woolly worms with a beetle or booby trailer has been a consistent way to find action on your sinking line. The bite remains spread out amongst most of the beaches, and we recommend spreading out as well, as there is structure along pretty much every single beach that would be considered suitable for these fish to hold along and bringing a ladder will further open up options in this regard. While the fish seem to mostly be active during the low light hours of the day, the big fish have seemingly been caught mid-day when the bite is often at its slowest, so never let your guard down here as any bite could be the 20-pounder.
