Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Orvis Reno's Tip of the Week
Pyramid Lake is open but with some restrictions. Check Pyramid Lake Pauite Tribe Website for up to date information and guidelines http://www.plpt.nsn.us/ Fishing has been great! This is a great time of year to enjoy some great fishing while enjoying some nice weather. Fishing a woolly bugger with a boobie or beetle behind if has continued to be very productive. The fish are in shallow water, so you don't need to cast very far. The key will be figuring out what depth the fish are in. Make sure to count as your flies sink before you begin your retrieve. Also make sure you're retrieving for flies at a slower pace, so you don't snag fish if they are schooled together. Fishing with midges under an indicator is still very good and will result in snagging less fish. Fishing between 6'-10' , depending on the beach, has been working well.

5-Day Outlook as of 4/8/21
As the water warms the fish will start to get more in the spawn mode. As this happens the fish become more closed lipped and harder to catch. A good rule of thumb: if you can see the fish it's probably not going to eat your flies. Please try not to snag these fish.
Techniques & Tips as of 4/8/21
Indicator fishing with balanced leeches, mahalo nymphs, and/or chironomids. Strip bait fish patterns or wooly buggers with boobys or beetles. Go deep with jig patterns when the water temperature is warm.
