Pyramid Lake fishing season opens October 1st


The Tribe would like to invite all fisherman to come out and experience  Pyramid Lake the opening of fishing season on Monday October 1st. In 2010 Pyramid Lake was named as one of the top public fisheries in the world by Fly Fishing and Tying Journal. Pyramid  Lake is also is widely regarded as one of finest places to catch a Lahontan Cutthroat Trout.

Last year multiple fish weighing over 15 lbs were caught that by lucky fisherman at the lake. The Tribe would like to remind all visitors to the lake that day use, camping and other permits are required for all non-tribal members to access the lake. For the fourth year in a row Tribal permit fees have not increased from last year and can be purchased online at www.pyramidlake.us. Proceeds from permits help support programs that protect public safety and the unique eco-system of Pyramid Lake year round.

Water quality update: In August, the Tribe issued an advisory for Pyramid Lake due to natural caused water quality concerns at some locations at the lake. For the past month the water quality at the lake has vastly improved and the Tribe has lifted its water quality advisory. Current data indicates Pyramid Lake water quality is good for all recreational activities. The Tribe would like to also remind all fisherman and boaters to do their part to “Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers” by taking preventative measures to keep the waters of Pyramid Lake clean from invasive species.
