When: April 12th 13th & 14th

Where: The beach at Pelican Point, Pyramid Lake, NV

Who: Those interested in Pyramid and a good time.

Potluck Dinner: Saturday night 6 pm

Bombfires: Friday & Saturday Nights

I believe that it is time to start thinking about the Spring Pyramid Fest, as it it only 14 short weeks before it happens!! So get your vacation time put in and your get your taxes done, so that you can attend.

If you have never been to Pyramid Lake, but have been wanting to go, this is great time to come out to the lake. Not only will you be able to put a face to the names of others you have been reading about, but they can overwelm you with their knowledge of Pyramid Lake.

For those of you who have never been to a Pyramid Fest, we hold it on the beach at Pelican Point. The sand to strong enough to all RV's, from Mongo's cave to V_VBob;s class A and everything in between. The boat ramp is right next to the beach. Get there early to get your favorite place.

You can fish from the shore, right at the beach or from a boat. If you do not have a boat, but would like to fish from one, let us know and we will try to put you with someone who has an empty seat. (Might have to put the empty seat list on the Hitchiker board).

The fees have not changed. They are:

fishing - $9/day.....3 day permit is $24
boating - $9/day
camping - $9/day....3Day permit is $24

Brian is gonna love ya Richard. I hope to be there and catch some of the finest. It also will be close to the Ken Hembree Classic (he was a past member and has passed away). We will all enjoy a great time and hope you all will attend. It gets crazy at times, but you have the chance of joining the classic and winning something or getting your picture on the Crosby Lodge wall......Jetspray

From the list of guests forming presently you should not miss the chance to catch the monsters that are around for this years fest. Two years ago in October there were tons of fingerlings in the Warrior Point area (never saw so many under the boat), those things are close to 10 lb'ers now and some out there are in the 20 lb + range. We all are gonna have a great time........Jetspray

You can rent cabins & trailers at Crosby's if you wish. Most of us stay on Pelican beach north of Sutcliff. Remember that it is tribal land/lake and you have to get their lic's and pay fees for boating and camping. All of that can be done at Crosby's in Sutcliff or at the marina ranger station. Follow the rules about slot fish sizes and you should be OK. Everyone is welcome......Jetspray

I'm planning on going this year. I've never been to pyramid and figure why not pop the pyramid cherry and meet some new friends! I've got some tackle questions for both trolling and shore fishing. Also, is it un heard of to troll a 14ft aluminum with 15hp on this lake. I've heard the horror stories with the wind but I figure if I stay close to shore I should be okay. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks and hope to meet everyone and rip some lips!

The lake winds and chop is what the "fear factor" is all about. Keep an eye on the chop and winds dust up on either the north or south end of the lake. It is comperable to Tahoe in size but not depth. Most of us, myself included, carry extra stuff to fish with, if you drop by the campsite on Pelican just have to shake a hand and say hi. Crosby's Lodge in Suttcliff has alot of gear that is used on the lake and you can get your permits for camping, fishing, & boating and you will need them they do not recognize calif/nevada fishing lic's. Slot limits for size and amount of fish you can have are available there too. BTW no guns allowed or fireworks, just pay attention to the rules and you should be good to go. PM me if you want more info.......Jetspray

Smart man. Be flexable. If you can't launch then still fish. Pelican can be quite good from the shore. You won't catch as many as if you are in a boat but they will average bigger.

I've heard rumors of 22 to 25 fish a day near Warrior. I would imagine shore fishermen near Popcorn will be the winning ticket. Long distance between the two points but it lets you know the fish are spread along the west shore. Still love to fish the kitchen though:mat:........Jetspray

June 30th is cutoff point for fishing Lahontan Cutthroat, then you can fish for Sacramento Perch only. Opening day again is in Oct (1st). You probably would enjoy coming just to see things happen.......Jetspray

Weather supposed to be real iffy through the middle of next week with winds 15-20 mph. I hope the weather clears up for you guys doing the fest and those guys doing the derby. I have been hoping for some decent wind conditions on a friday so a friend from Sacto can come up and fish with me in my little boat.

When the winds are bad I just fish around Pelican to the south, otherwise just sit close to the camper and enjoy the view (with an adult beverage)........Jetspray

Ok Rich, I am definitely going, my wife is on the fence. I have a few questions......how is the bathroom situation there?? My wife is 3 months pregnant and has to use the restroom more often than normal. She is a champion tent camper, but if the wind is bad she might be miserable. She is also afraid that she will be the only female there. She is down to fish but she can't do hardcore fishing for hours like me, so boredom might be an issue. Anyhoo.......I will see you all there either way.

Look for an orange Honda Element.

She will not be the only female there friday through sunday. Bathrooms on Pelican are pit toilets that are kept up by the tribe and not bad. I always carry extra TP though and you are welcome to use it if you run out. Bring your own water supply as well. Windy condtions can come up from time to time, but most of the tenters buddy up around the RV's. We will have a Bombfire friday through sunday so if you can bring wood it is a blessing to make it bigger. I usually carry some if I have room in the boat.......Jetspray

I have boxes full of "secret lures". The weather has been warm lately there is a storm coming in for the weekend this week, but have not looked for next week. There are a series of low pressure lines coming this way in the Pacific so make sure you have a rain parka just in case.

Jetspray has a 19.5 ft Alumaweld jet with Yamaha kicker. You should easily find the gang when they start to gather to bs and nip the bottle before dinner and the bonfire. The wind came up here in Reno by 10:30 this morning and hit Pyramid a little later according to NOAA.
