Many of our area lakes and reservoirs are open and fishing very well. The very light winter we have had has largely kept these ice free and fishing well from a float tube, raft or from the banks.
Many of your Pyramid Lake techniques and flies can be used here in that the trout behavior is largely the same in these cold winterlike conditions. As things warm up you will have great success adapting to more localized insect focussed diet but for now Balanced Leech and Holographic Midge can put a good number of fish in the net.
Here is one of our classic podcast episodes with Phil Rowley. In it we review some of the tactics and technques that work on many of our area stillwaters. If you make it out please let us know how it goes by tagging us on your social media posts or dropping us a message. Good luck!!!
