Took my neighbor Rob and his son Clif out to fish Pyramid Lake today. Clif is a professional fishing guide in Alaska. He was a lot of fun to fish with, and was impressed by the quality of the fishery. I just drove the boat so they could catch some nice ones.20191101_130136.jpg20191101_114044.jpg20191101_165626.jpg

Niiiice fish.....landlocked salmon?

I was near your area in sept, I did get a chance to drive around Lake Tahoe but didn’t make it to Pyramid Lake. I flew in and out of Reno, my boy got married near Truckee CA. Awesome country out there. Lots of open dry land and desolate lakes.

Willy-C These are Lahontan Cutthroat Trout
They can grow over 20 pounds
They grow quickly
The story about their recent re-introduction back into Pyramid Lake after becoming extinct this past century is an amazing feat of luck and science

Hope it was a fun wedding!

Nice day at Pyramid with my buddy Jeff and his friend Stephanie.
Jeff won the annual Crosby's Lodge fishing derby in 2002 at the lake. Every yearly winner gets their name added to a placard :cool:
I'm maddoggin my Lahontan Cutthroat Trout right before I released it.
And a pretty sunset shot of the Great Pyramid.

When I lived in Austin, no interest in a boat to fish for bass n catfish on Lake Austin, but fished with guides on Lake Buchanan for Stripers, that was fun n they are good to eat!
You might give it a shot sometime....

Agreed. Buch is my normal hangout. I generally stay south, between the county park and lighthouse, but sometimes go up towards Flag island or the dam. Have not been on it in a while, but I can pretty much find the fish by sight, since I have been on there for years. Looking forward to dropping the boat in and going after whites and stripped bass and those hybrids soon!
