Trout were the best bet at Pyramid with anglers doing well in the marina

Pyramid Lake, CA - Caswell, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Pyramid held near 85 percent of its capacity, and, when the weather cooperated, fishing was good. Trout were the best bet at Pyramid with anglers doing well in the marina. Get Bent Baits Minijigs, Mousetails, dough baits, and spoons all worked for bites. Trout continue to show throughout the lake with some reports coming as bycatch for bass and catfish anglers. Large and smallmouth anglers got bent using finesse baits and deep diving cranks on main lake points and along bluff walls. Striped bass fell for cut baits, lugworms, topwater lures, and trolled A-rigs. Striped bass fishing has been excellent at times and almost impossible at others. Catfishing was also a reliable option for anglers soaking chicken liver, dip bait, or cut baits.
