Pyramid Lake Update 4/6/17- The Yo-Yo Diet

At Pyramid, we have had plethora of ups and downs and the last couple weeks have been the same. Fishing has been amazing some days and then slower on others, but the fish are there and  sticking to your guns and fishing hard is still the trick to ensuring a good day with fish caught and the chance at that big boy you've been hunting for. For some, it might not be the typical day you are used to for this time of year but we need to remember we have had a huge influx of water that the lake level is continuously rising and the water is a little cooler than it has been in the past years so things have been changing on a daily basis. The fish are there and they have been closer to shore than most people would think.

The indicator bite has been the more productive of the fishing methods.  Midges and nymphs in black, wine, and red have been great.  A very close competitor has been the balanced leech in black olive and grey. Check our store for some great midges that will be sure to put you on the fish. Vary your depths through the day to find the feeding fish.

Stripping has been good with darker flies in the lower light and brighter flies during the day.  A contrast of a black and a white fly combo is the best start. The beaches are changing fairly rapidly so please be careful wading even in the familiar spots.


Always stay confident as our last 4-day Trophy Pursuit trip we hosted offered a mix of host and slow days, but we stuck to our guns. Casey was able to put his clients on 4 fish over 10 pounds in just one day! These clients were stoked to say the least and it will be a day that was never forgotten!

Again, fish hard with confidence and you will be rewarded. Don't get discouraged and wait for the schools of fish to come and take advantage of all opportunity.  Tight lines
