Pyramid lake report

Well after months of planning and preparation to head down to makoville for the last week of October, which is my favorite trip of the year, we were greeted with extremely windy forecasts for the vast majority of the trip and decided to head north instead of south.

Sean Garcia and myself packed up the fly rods and the cold weather gear, and put the swimming trunks and SPF 70 away. We left Los Angeles at about 1 am on Saturday morning and shot straight up to pyramid lake outside Reno. The plan was to camp but nighttime temps getting to about 1 degree F, we decided on a cheap hotel instead.

We spent 6.5 days of fishing and boy was it an epic trip. The cold weather system that was moving through really had the fish in shallow and on the chew.

We had 8 to 10 fish days every day until the weather finally warmed up and the fish pushed back into deeper waters on the final couple days before we left.

Highlight of the trip ended up being the very first fish I hooked on Saturday right when we got to the lake, scaled at 16lbs before the net broke

The trout in the Eastern Sierra are a snack to these things

That chair/ladder combo looks dope. Did you buy that or make it yourself?

Id love one for surf fishing the bay in Baja.
I don't always tell people where I fish. But when I do, it's a lie

I'm telling ya you have to keep these suckers on a game clip until just before you drop them in the frying pan.(Rossman)
