Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

Fishing continues to be good, I am cautious to say great because its not a numbers game right now. There is however a really good chance to hook into a trophy sized trout of a lifetime. This past week have seen many fish over the 10 and 15 pound mark. I have heard of a few 20 plus being landed in the past week and I got one a few days ago. It’s a bit of a grind out there right now, lots of casting...

Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

Doug Ouellette Reports on 11.2.2016

Pyramid Lake continues to produce several BIG cutthroat from shoreline flyfishers. Retrieving Popcorn Beetles, Boobies, Buggers and Tui Chub patterns have been working well. The fish are all over the lake, pick your favorite spot and don’t be afraid to move a bit. These BIG fish are not easy so be prepared to grind it out. Be ready on every retrieve, it could be...

We are averaging just over 2 fish per hour, mostly the...

Truckee River and Pyramid Fly Fishing Report

The Pyramid Lakeopener was this last weekend.Big winds for this years opener put a wrench in our fishing. Normally some wind is good for Pyramid Lake but not when your out on your tubes, or in a boat trying to target the fishing in the deeper water. Still fish were caught, but it wasn’t as good as the last few openers for the majority of anglers. Sure, some shore guys caught some stranglers...

Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

Matt Gilligan Koles Reports on 9.29.2016

So long summer. We had a good water year once again, and fishing was just like every other good summer before. If you made your way out to fish with me, thanks.

Flows have been steadily dropping since the first week of Sept, and now we are at about 120 cfs in the Hirsch, and 140 near stateline, on the Truckee River. Not a lot of meat on the bone in most of...

Truckee River Fishing Report

Matt Koles reports on 9.8.2016

Summer is a done deal, kids are back in school, the river is pretty much empty, the burners are gone, and it’s time to decompress.

Fishing on the Truckee River is very good with the fall like weather over the weekend. Lows are in the 20’s, and highs ain’t bad. A man could fish all day now and be comfortable.

Flows are still up as I write this, but for how long, I’m not...

Little cooler temps this week than last, and finally, a few afternoon thunderstorms helping to cool things off.

August is always kinda rough with the hot weather, and smart picky trout full of crayfish in their bellies. That being said, we still have very good flows and we are almost to the end of the month. Nights will cool dramatically and before you know...

Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing Report

John Fochetti Reports on 4.7.2016 jf.clearwaterlodge@gmail.com

Fishing this last week has been pretty good considering how nice the weather was. I saw the largest number of fish to hand in a day this year, and to top it off my client Brent Rhylick got a 16 pounder to end things off. So,even if it is a slow day keep stir you never know when a big one could cruise by, and if your flies aren’t in the...
