Pyramid Lake Description

Pyramid Lake is a desert lake located on Paiute Indian reservation land. A Nevada fishing license is not needed, however a permit must be purchased for fishing or boating on the lake. At 25 miles long and 4-11 miles wide, this is a very large lake that can be quite intimidating to the first time fisherman, however it can be fished similar to many other small stillwaters. It can also be a very demanding piece ...

Techniques & Tips

Indicator fishing with balanced leeches, mahalo nymphs, and/or chironomids. Strip bait fish patterns or wooly buggers with boobys or beetles.

7-Day Forecast
