Pyramid 5-20-14

 Chris with a nice Summit Lake cuttie

Jim with a sweet chromer

 Another nice Summit fish

 Quality desert chrome

More desert chrome!

Pyramid Lake is still kicking out sweet fish as we head into the final stretch of the season. Water temps are slowly coming up into the low 60's and the fish are MEAN. These desert chromers are great fighters and will surprise many anglers that are used to the fight of Summit strain fish. We are catching them mostly on balanced leeches and Moo's balanced minnows but stripping a popcorn beetle will work too. I am still guiding anglers at the Desert Lake until the end of the season so if you want to tangle with some desert chrome call me at 530 414 1655 to book your trip.

 9# Summit Lake cuttie

 Sweet Pyramid Lake Chrome

Releasing a 10# Pilot Peak strain cuttie

My 11.5# chromer

Fishing at Pyramid is really getting interesting. We have been having some good to great days lately fishing for chrome Pilot Peak cutthroat with numerous fish in the 8-10# class and a handful over 10# this week. The Triple M balanced minnow has been getting a lot of love from these silver bullets as well as balanced leeches in Black Magic and Canadian Olive. White on Wine, rootbeer float and trojan midges are also getting a few fish. Crowds are light for the most part and water temps are in the mid 50's. We still have 6 weeks left in this epic season and I expect fishing to remain good til the closer on June 30.

Pyramid Report 5/4/14

Matt with a nice cuttie

 James with his first cuttie

 Adney was fishing next to us when he hooked this sweet fish. I netted it for him and took a quick pic and then the fish was released.

James with a sweet fish

Fishing has slowed down a bit over the last week. There are lots of cruisers being seen but they dont seem at all interested in eating. I have been exploring some lonely beaches with some success. Not a ton of fish but some real nice ones were caught. Midging is still the way to go with the usual suspects catching fish. Crowds are starting to thin out and we are seeing more pleasure boaters and jet skiers than fisherman. There are still two months left in the season with some excellent fishing ahead so get out and fish!
