2019 Pyramid Lake Float Tube Weekend

Pyramid Lake has long been known for its huge Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and its peculiarity of anglers standing in a lake fishing from ladders. Although “Ladder Fishing” is still the most popular way to fish Pyramid Lake, the introduction of the Pilot Peak strain of Cutthroat Trout in 2006 has helped put float tubing back on the map at the lake. The Pilot Peaks tend to chase bait near shore in both early fall and late spring. Due to this, they have broadened our effective fishing season when the old Summit Lake strain are hanging out in much deeper water.

Over the last two years we have had some great fishing at the lake from pontoon boats and float tubes in October/November and again in May and early June. So this October we are going to give anglers an opportunity to learn how we fish for giant Lahontans in warmer water early in the season. We will cover a wide variety of topics including gear, safety, techniques, location and how to use the lake and the varying weather conditions to your advantage.

Come join us for a really fun weekend on the lake and get a chance to catch a fish of a lifetime.

When: October 5th-6th

Where: Pyramid Lake

Cost: $250 per angler – Repeat customers receive 10% off all our outings and clinics

Hey folks we still have a couple of spots open for our annual Stillwater Outing. Last year we hammered Rainbows and Smallmouth Bass at Wildhorse Reservoir. The lake is once again in Great shape and should be fishing very similar to last year. We had anglers with 30-40 fish a day on this trip. This is our favorite outing of the year and 90% of our guests have done this trip multiple times with us. It is very addicting. If you want to ask questions or sign up PM me or give me a call. 775.742.1754 Information below.

Wildhorse/Southfork Stillwater Outing

Elko Nevada – May 17-19 2019

Eastern Nevada has some of the most prolific Stillwater Fisheries in the West. Most of them are still relatively unknown and have very little fishing pressure. Come join us this May for what we consider our best outing of the year fishing around the Ruby Mountains in North East Nevada.

5 years ago, Rob Anderson and Chris Evison were looking for a new place to host outings in the spring season. For years they have held outings at Davis Lake, 5 Dot Reservoir and Frenchman’s Reservoir. Drought in Northern California has taken its toll on these three fisheries and even though the water is back the fishing is not. The fishing opportunities in Eastern Nevada are endless and we have picked two of the best to spend some time at with our clients and friends.
Rob Anderson and Chris Evison have been fishing and teaching anglers advanced Stillwater techniques for over 15 years. Rob is a commercial fly and product designer and also managed the old Reno Fly Shop for years. One of Rob’s specialties is hosting outings and teaching large groups. Chris and Rob have worked and guided together for 17 years. Chris is well known in the area for his knowledge of Pyramid Lake, The East Walker River and numerous other fisheries in the Reno Tahoe area.
The clinic will be a 2 ½ day experience covering Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, and shore line wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques. There will be lots of free time to practice and catch some big Trout and Bass. Space is limited and we sell out every year.

Schedule
Friday afternoon – check-in and set up followed by an introduction to the weekend’s events.
Saturday & Sunday – Two full days of fishing and learning new techniques on the lake.
Dinner Friday and Saturday nights are included at the campground. Lunch is included on the lake Saturday and Sunday.
