Big Trout on Pyramid Lake Nevada, It's On!

Never Fished It? Always Wanted To? Now's Your Chance

For those that enjoy Stillwater fishing there are a few places you must fish. For those of us that are serious Stillwater enthusiast, this place needs no introduction and many have already made the journey to the motherland of Pyramid.

What makes Pyramid so different, unique and most importantly, how do they grow such huge fish there? We have a few here in Colorado that are pretty sweet but are still trying to reach this Egyptian status. More than likely it's the
Lahontan Cutthroat trout that brings in most anglers to Pyramid Lake. It's listed as Nevada's state fish, these cutthroat trout are native to tributaries in the eastern Sierra. What do they eat that makes them grow to Mega size?The nasty Tui-chubs are a large food source for Lahontan Cutthroat here. Since the chubbies sometimes appear yellowish-green in color, chartruese or green flies (streamers) tend to be very popular at Pyramid Lake.

It has finally begun! The fishing has been great and is increasingly picking up. We have had reports of many large fish caught within the last week. Fish have been caught both on buggers and beetles fished on a shooting head and on floating lines under an indicator using nymphs and midges. Fishing has been good at The Nets, Pelican, Wino and Block House. Remember the Nets close on March 15th. It’s officially Pyramid time go catch a big Cutt. We're in the planning for a trip there hopefully soon and I can't wait.
