Pyramid Lake continues to fish steadily, but we still have the best fishing ahead of us as the deep winter months are the shore angler’s best shots at larger fish in the 20 pound class. The bite seems to remain spread out throughout the day, with no clear window on better fishing, so keep those flies in the water and be ready to strike back. The bobber fishing continues to be the most consistent and leeches have been getting the most takes. Your color choices will depend on the light, time of day and water clarity, but the go-to colors will be olive, black, white and secondary colors choices will be brown, purple, burgundy, silver, and peacock. The colors are endless and most will work, truthfully, it’s mostly a matter of keeping your flies in the zone, fishing with confidence, and remaining patient. When you’re looking to switch it up, the stripping game has been working as well, although it’s been a bit less consistent. The fly choice here is also widely varied and fishing with confidence is the most important factor. Beetles, boobies, buggers or various streamers all work as these cutthroat are not know to be picky eaters, perhaps that’s why they grown as big as they do!

Although Saturday will be tough to fish, next week should be great as long as you find safe access down the river, or out at Pyramid. Feel free to call the shop anytime for our up-to-the minute information about where to go and what to use.
