The high anticipation and expectations of the Pyramid Lake opener were high and the fishing met the standards. All beaches were fishing very well with good numbers and many reports of big fish being caught the first day. With the partial opening it has been more crowded but there is always room to find an area to fish.
Indicator and strip bite seemed to be equally successful. Darker flies were the ticket for most people. Midges in black and wine were big producers. Balanced leeches in black grey and olive brought in some big fish and good numbers as well. Stripping any of your favorite color patterns of beetles, boobies, and minnow type patterns brought some big fish from north nets. They haven't seen a fly in over a month and a half so if it was moving they were biting. The morning into the afternoon was when the bite was the best with tapering flurries through the evening. It's time to get back out to Pyramid.
