Pyramid Lake Update

Lost Coast Outfitters reports on 2.16.17

It seems there’s hope that Pyramid may open sooner rather than later. We’ve heard a few rumors and the following is from a KTVN News report, “Tribe officials hope to have the lake reopened for recreation by April. The council is working on a plan to open with limited access, with details announced at the end of the week.” What, “limited access” means is hard...

Pyramid Lake Update

John Fochetti reports on 2.2.17

The lake is still closed and the tribe issued a press release today stating that there will be no refunds given for permits. While this may anger some people think about a few things: First, the tribe needs our support and money to get the lake back to a safe place to fish. Second, this is due to weather, something that is out of anyone’s control. If you bought a...

Truckee River & Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

Gilligan reports on 1.5.17

First report for ’17, and all I can say is heavy, heavy dumpage of snow here for the Truckee River.

The storm door has opened. We have over a foot here in the Hirsch, which is good for us. We get shadowed a lot and have more cold than snow usually. Up on top of the hill they have been getting pounded! We could get all of our seasons snow in just this one week- if it works...

Truckee River and Pyramid Fly Fishing Report

Matt Koles Reports on 12.1.2016

Looking and feeling a lot like winter on the ole Truckee River and Pyramid Lake in Nevada.

It’s more winter than fall on the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake Nevada.

Cold and snow and rain, hopefully it will keep coming.

On the Truckee River we’ve been getting into some, not a lot, but some. Those some are usually big this time of year. Trouts...

Several double digit fish have been recorded this month. These monster trout have been caught on a daily basis. Although the numbers of fish per angler hours are a bit low, the numbers of...

Truckee River/Pyramid Lake

Matt Gilligan Koles Reports on 11.17.2016

Much colder temps this week on the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake Nevada.

No snow yet, but the forecast models look promising and all we need is the storm door to remain open and we will get it.

The Truckee River has been fishing pretty well, tougher than the last few weeks, but not bad. The water has got cold, that means trouts have migrated into slower...
