Pyramid Lake Opener

Opening week at Pyramid Lake produced many smaller cutthroat trout ranging from 17in to 25in. Both strains of cutts, the Pilot Peak and the Pyramid strain were grabbing readily. Fish were caught at all available beaches from the very north to the very south. The fish are keying in on the tui chub bait balls. Locate these for these bait balls and you will find trout.
Productive patterns are Clouser Minnows, Stanley Streamers and Popcorn Beetles. Wade fishing, float tubes and boats all were effective.
8 weight shooting head style lines at 350 grains is best. Lodging is available at Crosby Lodge on the lake.
