Any other thoughts, I'm still all ears!
Tyson: Your welcome, I hope you gathered some good advice and hopefully that will help your fishing Pyramid lake. Looking forward to your trip report!

Well, the maiden voyage to Pyramid came and left. The fishing was anything but stellar, but we still had a great time. Was able to get a ton of great information here, and from some regulars we mingled with out there. Apparently we showed up about 2 days too late, as the first half of the week it was fishing INCREDIBLE! But a storm came in and dropped the water temps about 8 degrees we were told, and it shut things off pretty good for the weekend. We were able to manage some fish, nothing huge, but definitely enough to get me to go back! Thanks again for all the advice and leads.

Here's a few pics from the weekend:

I didn't get to go, but the 8th-10th my FF Club fished Pyramid and my good friend Ken caught his biggest trout of a lifetime 32." Last year he hooked one in the same size class, but got wrapped around his later some how and lost the fish. If the club ever gets the pictures up on our website I'll put a link up to it.

Ain't that the truth? And my timing as of late has been impeccable! I did see a guy 2 ladders up from me catch a 29 inch 9+ pounder on Friday. It was a great fish. Talked to some guys who were in a group that caught multiple 9-10's and even a 14 pounder during the week leading up to when we arrived. It would be nice to watch conditions and just head out to the lake when they are perfect. But when you have to drive for 8+ hours to get there...you take what you can and enjoy the time out even if the fishing is a little tough. That's why they call it "fishing" instead of "catching!" It's an incredible place, and I'll definitely go back next year some time.

Now if I can just get Mojo to spill the beans on some SE Idaho stillwaters this spring....

Tyson: Well said, but getting to fish a place like that, in the back of your mind you just know there is always the possibility of landing a trout of a lifetime!

Tyson, anytime you want to go, you're more than welcome. I talked to Larry Tullis at the show and we're going to hit Daniels soon as ice off comes (that's a killer time with a blood worm) which might be July or August if the weather doesn't get better. I told him I'll give him a call when I find out.
And there's still over 4' of snow up at the Berry. That's going to be a late May ice off.

You know how to get a hold of me.
Alan
