Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (Summit strain, Pilot Peak strain)
Pyramid Lake fishing season is open from October 1st until June 30th.
Nestled in the high desert of northern Nevada, Pyramid Lake is truly a wonderful sight to behold. With its massive tufa rock structures and sprawling sage countryside, it is absolutely a magical place. Known for its breathtaking sunrises, emerald water, and flourishing wildlife, you will be sure to have a hard time going home.
Early in the season you can expect COLD mornings that turn into beautiful warm days. Once we are in the winter months, expect the weather to be cold throughout the day and the occasional snow storm. Spring brings warm days and HOT fishing. Pyramid Lake is notorious for its surprise wind events that can make the day a little challenging, but are also well-known for making the fish much more active.
With every full day trip you will be provided with hot meals (breakfast and lunch) that may be custom-tailored to your liking. An assortment of beverages will be provided and special requests can be made in advance. All terminal tackle such as flies, leaders, indicators, and more are included. Waders, boots, rods, and reels can all be provided as well. Just let me know what you need!
Be sure to bring some layers of clothing so you'll be prepared and comfortable—the weather in Nevada is prone to quick changes. Don't forget a camera or cell phone to help document your adventure. I will have a large amount of time on the water, so please be sure to bring some sunscreen if needed.
A 7-8 weight rod and reel setup with WF floating line. Please do not bring anything less than a 6 weight, as it will be a VERY long fight with a big fish and extremely taxing to the fish and its health. If you like to strip flies, we reccommend a 7-8 weight with a fast-sinking head (5-10 IPS). Normally a 300 to 350 grain line works best. If you are traveling light or on a quick business trip, I can provide all pertinent equipment for fishing. Please let me know in advance what is needed. If waders are required, please provide your height, weight, and shoe size.
The Reno/Tahoe area is a bustling metropolis of outdoor activities and social scenes. With hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, ski resorts, casinos, malls, and yes, an Orvis store, your evening excitement will be rivaled only by our day of fishing!
