Pyramid - March 3 2013

Sunday we headed out to Pyramid for a morning on the water. We started out at Indian Head beach around 6:45. When I drove up there was only one other gent at the spot and he was in the middle of releasing a good fish. He had been having pretty good since first light throwing a black foam beetle that he had fashioned out of a size 8ish black woolly worm. My arrival was the kiss of death. No more fish from that point on save for one that we were able to pull in but didn't take a picture of.


As usual we made the move to Shot Dog around 9:30 and the action was much the same there. Tom did pull in a nice hen on a 4ish olive sparkle bugger but other than that, it was dead and that was much the report from everyone we talked to. In contrast, folks fishing from boats were having noticeably better luck judging by their hoots and hollers. The trip told us two things:
1. Get out there early (duh)
2. Fishing deeper water (about 100 yards off shore) yields the better results right now.

Pyramid Lake Provides

Pyramid Lake has been a mystery this year, I have not had the chance to make it out to the lake 1 time yet. Some of the other so-called contributors to this site have been able to make it out but they lack the motiviation to post for you viewers. BRFC now stands for Brandon's Review of Fish Catches. So long old friends. Now to the fishing, as is the case in February the mornings are bone chilling cold and by mid morning it is somewhat tolerable on the ol' mitts. After a delicious BK breakfast sandwich and some coffee we were headed to one of our favorite spots only to see it filled with early risers. We decided to turn the rig around and head north of Pelican to another good location with some deeper water. After about 30 minutes of casting feathers into the abyss I hook up with a very lethargic wet rag of a trout. No offense to the trout. It was a nice male and the day was looking up, however it wasn't so and that was to be the only fish to hand for the day. He took a green #4 bugger being stripped as slowly as you can. reports are that guys have been getting them on nymph rigs when the weather permits. We will be out Sunday, hopefully we can get more than a single this time. V__CEBC
