Really had a great time fishing Pyramid Lake last March and getting ready to fish it again this coming Spring. The drive along the 395 we hit some snow at the higher elevations. A few pics from my last trip out to share... Pyramid Lake and The Truckee River Reno, NV. Fly fishing with an indicator and large midges really gets the big Lahontan trout excited. Fished with ladders, pontoon boats and from the shoreline. Have to be careful with the wind and waves on Pyramid Lake, it is 27 miles across and no place to be caught out in a pontoon boat. I was glad to beach mine and fish from the shore on one of the days fishing. Large midges just about 6-7 feet below the indicator, number 8 and size 10 white bead heads. Typical snowcones in black and blue. Morning air temp was 27 when we headed out to the lake from Crosby Lodge, water temp down around 39 warmed up to 41. The best part of the day air temps warmed up to 40 and some good wave action 2-3 feet which really stirs up the fish. When I was gearing up I thought I pulled out my 6wt Sage SLT, but instead had grabbed my Z Axis 9' 5wt rod that I custom built from a blank. Well it did the job on the 30 incher I pulled in. Man did that rod flex as I brought it to the net. Check out the tag on the fish, recently spawned out at the nets at the lake and released. This is what it looks like fishing side by side standing on a ladder or some guys have custom seats on top of their stands. Water is cold this time of year and you can sometimes see the fish cruising in along the drop. First time fishing Pyramid two years earlier with a guide. Set up was nymphing bead head pt below an indicator in 8-9 feet of water. A fine looking 30.5 Lahontan Cutthroat on a Z Axis 7 wt. Back to last March I fished the Truckee with Arlo a local guide, he really knows this river. The section we fished can be tough and the river isn't know for numbers but the fish average 20 inches. Any comments or thought appreciated. Thanks, Robert Just after posting this I was watching news of the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area, flooding is expected this weekend. Hope people and their homes in the area are safe.
