I have just returned from a long sojourn to the emerald waters of Pyramid Lake Nv. This year is unlike any that I have experienced out there. Tough fishing conditions were the name of the game with some days yielding a handful of grabs and others providing consistent action. Stories abound as to why the fishing is as tough as it is but I have no real answers. All I know is it is not what we have grown accustomed to. The nice thing is crowds are light and most beaches are ghost towns.
Onto the good news...I got this 8.5 # buck on my last night at the rocks at Pelican.
Usually I don't spend a whole lot of time on the rocks, but this year I found it to be a good place to fish and warm up in the afternoons. I caught fish there midging but it was never red hot action for me.
Even though the fishing was not very good, the friendships forged in the wind and waves of the big lake will be carried with me a life time. I am itching to get back to the stark beauty and fiesty cutthroat.
