Pyramid Lake, March 3, 2012

Friday, March 2, 2012
I made the drive up to Pyramid Lake outside of Reno, Nevada.  After a few stops, I arrived around 12pm right behind Tom, Billy, Alby and Brett.  We got camp setup and started to try to fish.
The water level seemed pretty high, and after taking out my ladder at South Nets, I was still casting in around 3-5ft of water, which is too shallow.  So I figured I would get the boat out.  I found the drop from 5-10 ft and started fishing around the ledge in 10-12ft of water.  A few other guys got their float tubes out and fished.  By the end of the night, I think I had 2 fish.  Fishing was SLOW.  Water was right around 44 - 45 degrees.  We figure the fish are out deeper feeding on the tui chub and haven't made the move to the shallow water.  We were a bit 'early'.

Woke up, no one was fishing at South Nets.  I took the boat out and was able to get a fish.  I moved out into a ledge at 23 to 28ft of water and landed another one.  If the fish were going to bite, they always bit right when I got to a spot, but then the bite tailed off.  Finally later in the afternoon I had an indicator fish.

Same story, so we started fishing.  I had a fish early on then took a break for breakfast.  Upon going back out, I was able to get 2 more fish, and watched Billy catch 3 from his tube as well.  Alby finally got a fish, and Tom never was able to get one the whole trip.
I left pyramid at 130 and made it back to Danville by 545.  Decent amount of traffic on the 80.

Hopefully we can get back up there when the fishing turns on in the next month or two!

Below are some picture from the trip:
