Pyramid Lake

Tip of the week 

Pyramid Lake's cutthroat season opens Wednesday. Get out early and find deep water. Most anglers have reported a lot of activity on fish finders marking bait balls and cutthroat in 20 to 80 feet of water. Use a sinking line like Depth Charge and find a steep drop off or fish from a pontoon or boat early in the season. White/grey/red combos will work best. Strip and "jig" flies at depths of 20 or more feet. "Jigging" with flies on sinking line isn't the most fun way to fish, but it is more productive in very deep water for the lake's big cutthroat.

Seven-day forecast 

Fishing is going to be red hot. The fish will stay in deeper water for the better part of October, so concentrate your efforts on the deep drop offs with sinking line until more are seen in the shallows. Stripping is always better early in the season. Orvis Reno offers the largest slection of Pyramid flies. Join us Oct. 18th for a Pyramid Lake presentation (230 pm) and free BBQ and Beer 12-2!
