This has been one of the best late seasons at Pyramid in a long time. The water temperature is hanging in there for late May and that has really helped a ton. The water temps. are still in the upper 50’s to low 60’s in the shallows. There are some windy days ahead of us which help keep the temperatures down this time of year. We could get another few weeks of good fishing if this keeps up. A few days in the 90’s and no wind could also turn it around quickly. 20-30 fish days are not uncommon for anglers moving around and finding the right wind conditions and pods of fish. There is a strong Callabaetis hatch mid-day and that is also helping the fishing. Nymphing has been the most effective way to go for sure. Maholo Nymphs in Red, Black or Wine are a good bet to imitate the Callabaetis right now. Two fly rigs with the bottom fly fished close to the bottom and the upper fly about 2-3 feet up is a great way to go. There are plenty of places to get Maholo Nymphs if you are headed to Pyramid including Mark Fore and Strike in Reno, Keines Fly Shop in Sacramento and Scheels in Reno. The best places to fish this time of year are ones with less boat and Jet Ski traffic. Try going to the North or the South end of the lake to stay away from summer traffic.
