Pyramid Lake, March 2009

Another year is in the books at Pyramid Lake and although the fishing was slower than the previous couple of years, we had a great time and some huge fish were caught.  We spent the first few days just rolling from beach to beach looking for fish.  We finally found some fish milling around on the Southwest side of the lake.  I would say we averaged about 3-5 fish a day per angler, down from 12-15 fish a day.  We saw a good amount of fish that were smaller this year as well, but we had a 15lber, 10lber and several fish in the 7-9lbs range landed.  Pyramid is different from any place I have fished.  It is a social fishery where everyone gets to share and enjoy everyone’s success.  I would not want to do it every week, but a chance to hang out with friends in this setting will be bringing us back for many years to come hopefully.  Add that to the fact that at any given moment you have the chance to catch a fish of a lifetime and it is tough to beat Pyramid in March and April.  Next year we will be doing this trip a couple weeks later to hopefully find more fish in the shallows.  Many are heading up again, so I would book early if you want to guarantee a spot.  Thanks to everyone in the crew for some great memories.  Already counting the days until Camp Lahootie 2010.
