One week to go in the season. The fishing season officially closes on June 30th to trout fishing. The water is still in pretty good shape for late June but it is getting really warm already on the surface. The best fly fishing has been from float tubes and pontoon boats in a little deeper water. Shore fishing is still just o.k. in areas where you can get your flies into 15-20 feet of water from the shore. Block House, Sand Hole, Indian Head and Monument are all worth trying. Stripping Tui Chub imitations with a really fast sinking line has been a great way to go. Hanging a Pyramid Lake Balanced Leach on a deep water indicator leader is also working.
The lake has been pretty much taken over by the summer crowd and the fisherman are few and far between. You can pretty much fish anywhere right now and have the place to yourself. It won’t be long until opening day in the fall and we can all get me another 6 month dose of Pyramid Lake and maybe a trout of a lifetime!
