Lyman Lures Catch Lots of Big Fish !
Lyman Lures have been
catching fish for over 70 years . Lymans are a “ cut plug ” lure that is designed to imitate the erratic action of an
Brian Garcia of Alta shows off the largest trout he has ever caught , a 17.97 pound Lahontan Cutthroat hooked at Pyramid Lake on October 3rd . The behemoth was landed trolling a pink and silver “ Lucky Lola ” color of a 4 inch Lyman plug , trolled at 2.8 mph behind Vance ’ s Cannonball Flashers at 65 feet deep in the Hell ’ s Kitchen area of Pyramid Lake . The big cutthroat season at Pyramid will last all the way through next spring , with flyfishers and spoon throwers doing very well off the shore from January through March . Trollers will catch trout all year , until the season closes on June 30th . Photo by Paul Kneeland , Fish Sniffer staff

They wobble enthusiastically in a straight line for several feet , then suddenly dart out to either side , which really triggers gamefish to strike viciously so the prey doesn ’ t escape ! Lymans originally were built for the commercial salmon fishery on the West Coast and have been very popular with both sport and commercial salmon fishermen for many years . Now they have become extremely popular with trout , mackinaw and landlocked salmon fishermen . The 4 inch size is the go to lure for Pyramid Lake , and I can attest to their value – we have boated several cutthroat trout from 11 to 18 pounds this year on Lymans ! My favorite colors of the Lymans for Pyramid are the “ Red Dot Frog ”, Dill Pickle ” and “ Watermelon ” colors . A new favorite , however is the silver / pink “ Lucky Lola ” that landed the 18 pounder 2 weeks ago ! The 4 inch Lyman can be trolled anywhere from 1.8 to over 3.5 mph and still have great action . My favorite speed is 2.5 to 3.0 mph for Pyramid cutthroat .

A couple years ago Lyman introduced a 2 inch model that has produced some nice trout for me at Lake Shasta , Lake Berryessa , and Eagle Lake . It is a smaller model , but has the
same erratic , darting action as it ’ s big brother . 4 inch Lymans are offered in two dozen colors , and the 2 inch model is available in seven different colors . Ask for them at your local tackle dealer like Willfish Tackle in Auburn and Mountain Hardware in Truckee and Blairsden . They are also available at the Pyramid Lake Lodge and Marina .
