Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report
Pyramid Fly Co. Reports on 1.15.2020
Things are heating up as we start gaining daylight the Pilot peaks begin sliding into pre spawn. This season we are seeing an awful lot of fish in the 10 pound plus category. And now these fish are pushing into the shallows in bigger groups to feed as the water temperatures continue to drop. As these fish push into the shallows they are going to begin feeding heavily on midges like a whale does plankton.
This time of year you can still catch fish with both methods retrieving and bobber fishing. We like to fish bobbers to allow our flies to stay in that strike zone for much longer periods, thus increasing our chances for grabs. Buggers and beetles in the usual blacks, browns, greens and white still remain the colors of choice. While hanging midges under the bobber reds, blacks, wine and everything in between. On those calm days don't be afraid to give those flies some action. Yes! Move that bobber and set on anything fishy.

Jim Stimson reports on 3.29.18

I believe we have turned the corner on winter. The morning temperatures are still crisp but it warms quickly with the sun being so high in the sky. The month of March turned out to be the “Miracle” as promised with a plethora of snow in the high country. The preliminary readings at Mammoth Pass indicate that we are close to normal for the season. This bodes well for...

Pyramid Lake

The Lake continues to be inconsistent, one day it’s good the next it’s really slow. It is also being strange, on cloudy windy choppy days with low pressure it won’t fish well, then on high-pressure days with the sun out and no wind the fish are in the mood.


The water temps are still very cold, and I believe the fish want some warmer temps to get them into...

John Fochetti Reports on 3.1.2018

Fishing is definitely starting to pick up! Good numbers of fish are being caught and big fish are being caught almost daily. Fish seem to be pretty keyed in on chironomids, mostly darker colors. There are still some being caught on balanced leeches. Your best bet is to fish hard, the bite is kind of sporadic so stick it out.

Fishing has been really good one day and sucked the next. The weather does not seem to be making that much of a difference. One thing I can say for sure is that it’s crazy crowded out there. Most people are fishing just a few spots. My advice would be to try a beach that doesn’t have 100 anglers on it. You will have a better chance of catching that 20 plus pounder...

John Fochetti Reports on 2.23.2017 

With most of the west coast fishing opportunities practically non-existent, due to a crazy winter with no end in sight, Pyramid Lake has re-opened and the fishing is amazing. Currently, the beaches between Shot Dog down to the North Nets are open for recreational use. Those of you worried about the weather, remember the nastier the better! This is when your...
