This is the time of year that angler come from all over the West and even the Country to fish for Giant Lahontan Cutthroat Trout. March and April brings a little warmer weather and the migration of these fish into shallow water looking for a stream to splash their eggs into for a new generation of fish to begin their lives of the World’s largest Cutthroat Trout. The spawning channel at Pyramid Lake is the perfect place for this phenomenon to take place. Fish are geared up to run the artificial stream right now in search of the perfect place to lay their eggs. The Hatchery water is on but most of the fish are not quite ready to spawn. There are many beaches that fish are cruising the shallows and plenty of fish are being caught by shore fisherman. There have been some slow days and some really good days. Most of it is weather based. Stormy weather patterns over the next week or so should really help the fishing at Pyramid. We should be in a good fishing pattern for the next few weeks. Nymphing will be working well for the remainder of the season. Red, Wine and Black Maholo Nymphs continue to be a great choice for flies. The Albino Wino Midge is also a must have. Mark Fore and Strike, Keine’s Fly Shop, Orvis of Reno and California Fly Shop are all places to purchase these flies. Shooting Heads are also working well. Olive Martini’s and Bloody Marys have been tough to beat.
