Pyramid Lake Fishing Report – December 1st 2015:
Pretty consistent start compared to the past few seasons. Lots more fish caught out in 30′ of water for those brave enough to fish from boats. Reports are still really inconsistent from shore. The good reports now from shore are one fish per hour. Slow reports are one fish per day. We should really see that mix up with the last round of storms and the next week of storms. Water temps are right for the arrival of the larger cutthroat close to shore. They’re coming in with the cold.
Good beach reports from Monument, Warrior, Indian Head, Wino, Popcorn, and Howard’s. Hot flies at the moment include; Woolly Worm #6 Martini Olive or Midnight Cowboy, Hook Up #4 Silver or Olive, Beetle #8 Blue or Black, Bottle Rocket #6 Northern Lights or Blue, Holo Wing #4 Midnight or Golden Olive, Pyramid Lake Balanced Leech #6 Black or Olive or Brown.
