Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

With last week’s cold front moving through the area, the bite at Pyramid seemed to slow initially due to the drastic temperature change, but as the weather begins to warm back up and the barometric pressure remains low, we expect some good days out here this week. While you may initially think that Pyramid always fishes well during stormy weather, this time of year can be different and these big shifts in weather patterns can throw the fish off for a few days, but once settled in the bite will resume as normal. We are also in the spawning time out here and the fishing will typically slow for the month of April, but there are certainly still fish to be had and with the thinning crowds this is a great time to get a little breathing room while still finding some decent fishing. Although it’s rare to see larger fish this time of year, the numbers can still be there and with pleasant weather and light crowds, this is actually one of our favorite times to camp out here even if we aren’t catching the show-stoppers seen on Instagram during the winter. Stripping streamers will become very effective over the next month as well as using midges under an indicator in 3-8 feet of water depending on the drop off you are fishing.

If you haven’t heard, we will be moving the shop one door down to a larger space. It will be some time before we technically make the move – but we’re working on plans and adding to our orders to fill the space for the summer. We will have room for more events too, so keep your calendar open! Thanks for supporting your dedicated local fly shop.
