Fly fishing – Pyramid Lake style!Published: 9th February 2016 | Author: fmblog
Fulling Mill Ambassador Austin Lindsey shares a few tips on how to fish Pyramid Lake in Nevada and if you’re lucky land a 20+lb cutthroat.
“Pyramid Lake, Nevada is fast becoming one of the premier fly fishing destinations in the world. It is located 38 miles north of Reno. The lake is known for its trophy Lahontan Cutthroat trout and unique style of fishing. People travel from around the world for a chance to land a 20+lb cutthroat. Fishing styles vary day to day, one day you may be throwing streamers, the next you may have a size 14 nymph under an indicator. One of the most unique aspects of fishing Pyramid Lake is the use of ladders. Yes, we carry ladders out to the drop off, then proceed to stand on top of them. There are a few reasons for this practice. First off, it is COLD, both air and water. Wading and standing in one place in frigid temps is not an option here. Secondly, the waves can be huge. Lastly, it is much easier to cast when you are above the water. If you are up to the challenge and catching a 30” cutthroat is on your bucket list, there is only one place to go, Pyramid Lake.”
