Pyramid Lake has seen a reboot in fishing success this week. The post spawn bite has started and will conclude the big push of the annual spring spawn. Big LCT are hungry after not feeding the last few weeks and are eager to chase flies. Streamer fishing has been most productive at a growing number of beaches. Using flies like Jan’s Tui Chub or bigger articulated streamers like the Cheech Leech have been catching large fish from North to South. The indicator bite has made a noticeable switch in the last week and the Balanced Leech has begun to produce good numbers rather than midges and chironomids through early April. Most productive balanced leech colors have been white or peacock to represent a baitfish. As the fish spread out, fishing some of the more popular beaches will be less of a deciding factor when headed out to the lake. There are fewer and fewer people as we progress later into the season, so this is a great time to hit the lake if you’re looking for solitude. As we approach summer, the float tube fishing can be very productive and is the most underrated time of year to fish Pyramid Lake. Swing by the shop and we can give you up-to-date conditions for your float tube and some tips & tricks

Flies we Suggest: Cheech Leech, Balanced Leech Peacock #8, Balanced Leech White #8, Jan’s Tui Chub Olive #2, Jan’s Perch Fry #2, Micro Cat Whisker Booby, Deadpool Booby
