Two Day Pyramid Lake (NV) Fishout
with Rob Anderson

Agenda Overview:

  • ·       We meet at the lake at the predetermined location. On the first day we can also meet anglers unfamiliar with the lake at an easier place to find along the way. The guide(s) will be at the lake at day break unless other plans have been made due to weather. Anglers can show up at their convenience in the morning.
  • ·       Breakfast is served at the fishing location on the beach around 8:30-9:00 am. Breakfast is a full hot meal along with coffee and juice.
  • ·       After breakfast there may be a need to move fishing locations depending on the wind and the fish.
  • ·       Lunch is served around 1:00 pm at the fishing location and ranges from homemade soup and sandwiches to burgers or wraps depending on the weather.
  • ·       The guide(s) will stay with the group until late afternoon or later depending on the fishing.

What’s included:

  • ·       Breakfast and lunch both days, including water, sports drinks, soft drinks and coffee
  • ·       All necessary gear including ladders, rods and reels, waders, flies etc. It is a good idea if the anglers bring their own waders and rods if they have them.
  • ·       Guide fees


  • ·       $165 per angler for the two day outing, with a 6 person minimum.
  • ·       If the group reaches 9 anglers, then a 2nd guide will be hired for the first day and if the group gets to 12 anglers the 2nd guide will stay both days.


Anglers can use our corporate account to get hotel rooms at a discounted rate at either the Silver Legacy 

(800-687-8733) or the Grand Sierra Resort (888-877-8944). When making reservations make sure you tell them you are booking your room under the corporate rate with Bucket List Fly Fishing.  There is also camping at the lake if anglers have a hard sided camper, RV etc. Days are long at the lake and the short 45 minute drive to Reno is recommended. Both hotels have 24 hour food, really nice rooms and are a good choice after a lot of fishing at the lake. The rooms at the Grand Sierra are about $20 more a night but they offer a Junior Suite that has much more room for gear etc. for anglers sharing a room.

Rob Anderson Bio

Rob resides in Reno, Nevada and currently has his own fly fishing travel business, Bucket List Fly Fishing Adventures and is the lead guide and owner of Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters. Rob currently guides on the Truckee River in both California and Nevada, Pyramid Lake, Davis Lake, East Walker River, Frenchman’s and 4 different private waters. He regularly does speaking engagements on Pyramid Lake other Northern Nevada and California waters and numerous “Bucket List” destinations around the world including an annual hosted trip to the Amazon for Peacock Bass.  Rob is always willing and ready to educate fly fishing enthusiasts.

Rob Anderson grew up in Virginia and was fishing from the time he can remember.  At the age of 9, he learned to fly fish.  From that point on he fly-fished for bass and pan fish in Virginia as much as possible. After college, Rob pursued his other passion, golf, by working in that business for 15 years.  During this time he had headed west and settled in Lake Tahoe.  In 1997, while still working in the golf industry, he was reintroduced to fly fishing by his friend Chris Evison.  Chris taught him the art of fly fishing for trout in moving water.  His love of the sport was reborn!

 In his free time from the golf business he regularly visited the Reno Fly Shop where he began learning how to tie flies (he is now a Signature Fly Designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants with over 20 patterns tied commercially).  In the fall of 2001, the Reno Fly Shop offered Rob a part-time job which shortly thereafter, turned into a full time position managing the retail store, private waters program and guide business until the Reno Fly Shop closed in 2010.  The closing of the Reno Fly Shop resulted in Rob having more time and freedom in his pursuit of design, creativity and teaching in the Fly Fishing industry.

It was in 2003 that Rob pursued his interest in guiding at Pyramid Lake. Rob ultimately became the first non-tribal fly fishing guide at the Lake. Since that time has built a fly fishing specific website for Pyramid Lake, and runs the largest and most successful guide service there. Rob’s love of Pyramid Lake has also driven him to design Pyramid-specific flies which have increased the popularity of nymphing at the lake.  Two of these flies are the Maholo Fly and the Maholo Midge which are sold at fly shops and retailers all over the West.

 Rob was able to incorporate his passion for food into the guiding experience through his private waters program and hosting larger group outings and clinics. This unique offering sets guide trips with Rob apart from all others. Rob has several programs designed for larger groups at popular fly fishing destinations like Pyramid Lake and Davis Lake. Lakeside Meals and guided fly fishing for parties of 10 or more are easy. Meals are usually gourmet and can be things like Biscuits and Gravy, Turkey Noodle Soup, Smoked Baby back ribs, Venison Burgers and much more.

Whether you are a single angler looking to spend a half day on the water or a larger group looking for a unique fly fishing experience you will never forget, Rob is the man.
