    The lake closes for the summer at the end of June. Normally by this time of year we have forgotten about Pyramid and have moved on to other area waters. This season with all the high water on the area streams we have spent way more time on Pyramid later in the spring. WOW have [...]

    Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Apr 22, 2019 | 18:42 pm

    The lake continues to produce some huge Cutthroat Trout. Like we said in our February event at the Nugget, the numbers this year would be down which has been the case almost all season. This is due to the new stocking format of more Pilot Peak strain fish and less Summit Lake strain fish. There [...]

    Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Dec 9, 2018 | 23:45 pm

    The recent cold weather has started to change the conditions at Pyramid. The fishing is starting to slow down for numbers but there are quite a few big fish still being caught. The colder water which is now in the mid to high 40’s has sent a lot of the fish into deeper warmer water. [...]

      Pyramid continues to put out some big fish. This time of year, is maybe the best for a chance to catch that “Fish of a Lifetime”. The fish are very “Hot” right now as well. Fish in the 5-8-pound range are probably the most aggressive and it is not uncommon to have a fish [...]

    Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Nov 11, 2018 | 21:33 pm

    Pyramid is on fire after a few weeks of flow fishing. The water temperatures have cooled enough to bring fish back in close to shore. There have been quite a few big fish caught in the last week. It is still day to day but it is worth doing for sure. This week is going [...]

    With only 4 days left in the season, the report is going to be short. The lake water temperatures are climbing fast now with summer setting in and most of the fish are in deeper cooler water. If you are looking to get in one last trip, fish areas that have access to deeper water [...]

    Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing May 1, 2017 | 16:29 pm

    Well May is here and it feels more like Mid-April. The water temperatures are 5-7 degrees colder than normal and the weather has been colder than normal most of the last month. Add the Truckee River flowing into the lake at over 5000 CFS and you have the makings for an extended season. The lake [...]
