Pyramid Lake fishing report: June 3, 2019 by Michael Malekos

Presently, conditions are great and Pyramid Lake is producing high numbers of large Trout. Fish are cruising both the shallow and deeper water along the shoreline and, I expect this to continue for several weeks. 

Friday I waded Separator Beach (directly across from Pyramid Rock). My rig consisted of an 8-wt. fly rod and floating line affixed to a nine foot 2X tapered leader. To that I tied (and fished) only one fly, a size 14 flash-back hot spot nymph with a bb size split-shot weight affixed four inches above the fly.  A slow strip was the ticket. [Initially I cast using a shooting head but ultimately caught more fish using the described set-up.] Tip: if you fish this beach and it's not producing, work your way south and cast out from the protruding rock ledges.

Saturday and Sunday I fished Warrior Point Beach from a float tube. There, I cast an 8-wt. rod with full sinking line and a 2X leader. Again, I fished only one fly at a time. Successful patterns were a toss-up between the "white" and "midnight cowboy" balanced leech.  Fishing at this location right now is incredible, all anglers appeared to be catching fish.  Additionally the largest fish of the trip, measuring 29-inches, was caught there by my angling partner. 

Note: Early mornings and late afternoons are the best time to fish. The fishing season ends June 30.
