The spawn is in full swing, but should be ending soon. The surface temps have increased quite a bit from our last report. This has accelerated the spawn and will get us back to good fishing soon. The bite has actually picked up some with the increased temperature, and should continue to do so until the surface temps get above 65+ degrees.

Both the indicator and retrieve bites have been working. Micro Holographic Midges have been the best bet in very shallow (4-6 feet) water. The fish will start to retreat into deeper water as the spawn ends but will not go into very deep water (+20 feet) until the surface really heats up. The Boobies and Beetles are still working but it seems as if the fish are focusing more on Pyramid Lake Buggers at the moment.

We believe we still have a good month of fishing left out at Pyramid Lake, and as stated above it should only get better until the surface temps are too hot. While there have been periods when conditions have been challenging this season, there are still large fish being caught with some regularity for those putting in the time! Get out and make the most of the season.
