Good one day and tough the next seems to be the theme of recent days at Pyramid Lake. Water temperatures are reaching that 50 degree mark on less cloudy days. This is bringing the fish in close for a streamer bite in the late afternoon. Using a floating line with a smaller weighted streamer or balanced leech can be a fun effective way to target the rolling and active LCT.
Indicator fishing has been better in the morning and early afternoon, but fish are turning away from midges and balanced leeches once the water warms. This can be a fun and frustrating time of year as fish will visually slash at the surface, but are very difficult to target. My suggestion is to watch for certain areas where fish are more active and breaking the water surface. Sometimes this is in front of a rock, or off of a point. The key is to be observant as to where this activity is present. Cast into the area where you’ve noticed active fish, allow the flies to sink and retrieve quickly!
Flies We Suggest: Holo Midge (wine/copper, brown/copper, black/silver), Marabou Midge, Balanced Leech (peacock,diablo,olive), Cat Whisker Booby, Dirty Martini Booby, Spanish Olive Booby Midnight Cowboy, Pyramid Lake Beetle
Fishing at Pyramid Lake is good right now and with a couple approaching storms should get even better. ......
