On-the-Water Report | Pyramid Lake and Truckee River

Pyramid Lake - Sutcliffe, NV (Washoe County)

by Reno Fly Shop

Here is Mike Anderson with your On The Water Report Pyramid Lake.

The lake is now at 59 degrees. Fish are coming in shallow and are sitting from 8-22 feet. Stripping has been the best method from shore, which has started to get better.

The Truckee River is fishing well and the brown trout are all colored up and getting close to spawning. Smaller nymphs, crayfish, and streamers have been working well!
