Pyramid Lake Fish Report for 5-13-2022
The mornings have seemed to provide the most consistent action
Pyramid Lake - Sutcliffe, NV (Washoe County)
by Trout Creek Outfitters
As we come towards the end of the fishing season out at Pyramid, this will be our last report of the year for this lake. Starting next week we will switch gears to our local still waters.
Although this is technically the tail end of the season for Pyramid, the fishing still remains fair, thanks in part to this cold and wet spring thus far. The fish are mostly post spawn at this point and the bite will likely remain good until consistently warm temps drive fish into deeper water for the summer months. We are starting to see fish hold in deeper water already and if fishing under an indicator we recommend trying depths of 6-8 feet. The mornings have seemed to provide the most consistent action and starting the day by stripping streamers has been working quite well, this late in the season we find that using streamers with less flash and in more natural colorways has been best as is using sinking lines with a slower sink rate, which allows the flies to stay in the strike zone longer. Using midges or other bugs such as maholo nymphs, copper johns, dragonfly nymphs, etc. under an indicator has been working well when the sun is high or the lake has little to no wind present. This time of year is also a great time to camp out here, as the days are long, the weather is nice and the fishing remains good, just be sure to bring lots of sun protection (I.E. sun shirts, sunscreen, pop up canopies and lots of water).
