Hi

I was born and raised in Fresno, CA but never made it to Pyramid Lake. I fished the Truckee river but never knew about Pyramid Lake until later in life. Did you fish from a ladder when you were there?

Here is a link to an article about fishing Pyramid Lake for those not familiar with the fishery.

I use a brown body ,orange tail, and grizzly hackle one for the October caddis here..The insect is a size 10...Also for panfish, crappies and bass...trout will hit one tied to imitate the web worm catapiller...they are good to imitate any catapillers falling from the trees and brush...try using varigated chenille for the bodies..

Yes I did as a matter of fact LOL, but the funniest thing seen all weekend was a guy coming off his ladder to release a fish, when he climbed back up the ladder he lost his balance at the top and fell off, there was a lotta "chucklin" goin on all the way down the row of anglers.

Now the coolest thing was these 2 fellas that had set up some scaffolding, they had lawn chairs and a cooler up there with them, funny how much farther they could cast when they were 5' feet above the water.

Frank,
I just found out a couple months ago that a good friend of mine now lives in Reno, looks like I may have to make a trip to Pyramid in the spring.

That sounds like a good deal to me. Make sure you post some pictures.

I was thinking about the Wooly Worm and remembered that it was and probably still is the go to fly for the big Lahontan Cutthroat in Pyramid Lake, seems like they were popular in olive and purple crystal chenille. Been 15 yrs since I've been there.
Still is a very popular fly and many colors to choose from, I was at Pyrimad just last week. Fishing is starting to get HOT

I am going to be at pyramid in a few weeks, I hear the south nets is going to close on the 15th. Will that have a big impact on the fishing? It will be my first time at Pyramid.

The lake is hot right now. There are many many locations on the west side of the lake to fish at. The North Nets North, Windless Bay, Spider Point, Shotdog, Winno, and The Tammaracks. Check with the Reno Fly Shop when you get to town for up to date fishing info. They also have a great selection of flyies!!
