PYRAMID LAKE / TRUCKEE RIVER
Fly Fishermen Experience Superb Lahontan Cutthroat Fishing
RENO - The fishing at Pyramid Lake has been nothing short of fantastic since the season opener on October 1st . Anglers have been having success catching Lahontan Cutthroat Trout after locating schools of Tui Chub minnows . These bait balls congregate near points and other structure around the lake . Some of the most exciting fishing takes place at this time as you can cast a streamer into a school of Tui Chub being actively ambushed by large cutthroat trout . Streamers are the best option at this time since the fish are chasing schools of Tui Chub at a rapid pace . One of the more popular and effective techniques this year has been a vertical presentation using a heavily weighted fly or jig on a heavy sinking line . Baitfish patterns like the Reno Fly Shop Super Jig weigh 1 / 4 ounce and get down quickly . This new fly is available exclusively at the Reno Fly Shop and is available in 3 color combinations .

Many people have found success by using a fish finder to identify depth and locate trout and bait balls . Deeper castable sonar units are now available at the Reno Fly Shop in-store and online . Shore fishing has been slow but still possible in the early and late part of the day . Following the weather pattern change ,

Fly Fishing on the Truckee River has continued to be productive with almost ideal river flows for this time of year . With cooler nights on the top end of the river , water temperatures have come into an ideal range and set the stage for really good fall fishing . As the water has cooled , bug activity and food sources have changed a bit . A majority of the fish being caught
