We have gone through a 2 to 3 year lull concerning numbers of fish at Pyramid. Some of this may be due to the decision to re-stock the lake with much smaller fish a few years back. The lake has been producing bigger fish over the past few years but numbers are down. Hopefully this will not be a long term issue at Pyramid Lake.

The biggest reason the fishing has been slow at the lake is due to lack of storms. Thermo clines of warmer water build up in the deeper parts of the lake and the bait and fish will hang out in these warmer pockets until a weather event breaks them up. The shoreline temperatures are colder and have no food to speak of. This makes fishing around the beaches really tough. Look for some storms to change this up in weeks to come.
