With the time change last night it feels as if this winter may be finally on the run. February brought over 3 feet of snow to the Sierra Valley in two storms.
This was much needed precipitation and made for excellent backcountry skiing!
While the skiing was great I was not fishing, so when the storms stopped I picked up where I left off; fishing Pyramid. The fishing in early March has been very good to great depending on the day.
The Nets have been very crowded this year as usual, requiring one to get up way to early to get a good spot. Midging has been very productive with the usual suspects (rootbeer and Trojans) hanging under my bobber. While I have not personally caught anything big this season I have had the pleasure of netting a couple of nice fish and have seen a few very large fish caught around me.
The Nets will be closed on March 15th for the spring closure.On April 1st the Tribal Council will be making a decision on a regulation change to reopen the Nets.Let's hope they reopen them!It will surely spread the crowds out a bit.
Finally, I had the pleasure of fishing with Scott, a first time Pyramid angler yesterday.I met Scott through Kiene's Fly Shop message boards.
We had a fun time and he caught a few fish.It was fun fishing with you Scott!
