Not much better than giant Lahontans- I hope I have the chance to fish Pyramid in the future!

Going to be a little warm for the old ladder. Float tubes aired up waiting for the strike of sun rise on Monday. This is going to be a long weekend waiting!

Actually the step ladder is to get you up/out of the water if there's a good wind blowing. Wave action can be a '*****' as you have to wade out at least to your 'belly button.' Those short casting ladders make you about 10' tall and get you above the "surf."

I do concure, how ever every year on the opening the fish tend to stay away from shallow water as it is to warm for them. I have a custom built ladder that will be utilized very extensivly thru the winter and spawning months. Nothing better than spending 8 hours standing on a ladder.

Thumbs up Re: Pyramid Lake, Nevada

BC's quite correct; water tends to stay very warm until November (cold nights, far cooler days) and the fish will hold well out below the 'thermocline.' (sp?)

Hit Pyramid on Friday (10-12-12) It was outstanding!! Netted 12 - 9 shook the hook. Biggest fish was 6lbs and I caught my second tagged fish out of Pyramid. I will post the fish data once I hear back from NDOW.
