Took the annual fly fishing trip to Pyramid Lake, NV, during the middle of March in search of the +20 pounda! Didn't happen this year but some nice cutthroats were landed. The weather was pretty nice and so was the fishing but unfortunately the catching was slow as in 3-4 fish per day slow. Me and a buddy gave an honest 4 1/2 days of effort. As usual, I should been there a month earlier. Water temps were in mid to low 40's.
The first evening was productive for me, big fish moved in after the sun dropped behind the ridge. I went to a streamer and hooked up with a 28 1/2, 25 1/2 and a 24 incher. A few days in the about the same time of day, my buddy Erik Hallen, a first timer to Pyramid, caught his trout of a life time, a 31 1/4 incher followed by a 26 incher! Both were on stripping a black bugger. He made many casts as we all do, but for coming out on a first time trip, he nailed it!
Both fish were released unharmed to hopefully continue their growth to "jumbo" 20 pounda's! Next year will be another adventure and I can hardly wait.
Tite lines on monsta trout!
