OK folks, this is the big sniffer event of the year. *Pyramidfest 2006 will be held on the beach at Pelican Point near Suttcliffe NV from Friday, October 13 through Sunday, October 15. *We are still in the planing phase as far as the events for Friday night at Crosby's, but the Bomb Fire and potluck feast at the beach will be on for Saturday night. 8-)

This will be the 3rd Pyramidfest event. *The first two Pyramidfests provided outstanding fishing for cutthroat trout and even better camaraderie among the sniffers. *Camping on the beach is unlimited so there is room for everyone. *Members, lurkers, and ex-members are all welcome!

Information

Pyramid Lake is located on a Paiute Indian Reservation (http://plpt.nsn.us/) about 30 miles from Reno, NV. *All that is needed are tribal permits for fishing, camping, and boating. *You do not need Nevada fishing licenses. *If you have been following the Trout board, you will know that Pyramid is a unique and strikingly beautiful desert lake with THE best cutthroat trout fishing in the world. *Both the size of the fish and the numbers that can be caught are remarkable. The fast action and sight seeing opportunities make this a great event for families with kids.

Here are links for the Pyramid Lake Fisheries page and the Tribal regulations:

http://www.pyramidlakefisheries.org/

http://www.pyramidlakefisheries.org/HuntingFishingRegs.htm

A limited number of rooms are available at Crosby's Lodge, but they fill very fast. *Most people camp on the beach in RV's, tents, or trucks.

Here's the link for Crosby's:

http://www.crosbylodge.com/

Bite Me II and I will be organizing this event, so we are posting the sign up thread on the Freshwater board so that either one of us can update and edit the posts.

There is shore fishing available, but it generally doesn't really heat up until November. *So we will try to match everyone up with boat seats if possible. *

So who is going to make it this year?

Please also put me on the list with boat as long as the weather holds up I can take my boat.

It looks like Heather isn't going to be able to come this year. I guess winning another blackbox is out of the question ;) She has school at Sac state that week so I'm bringing my old hunting buddy instead. I'll have to give him the rookie initiation tour like you gave me last year DOC. We'll be up in the morning on Friday.

Great news for those who need their morning caffine fix, the Mankin family coffee shop will be set up for the fest this year :D Add Big John and Betty Mankin to the list. As a little bonus, there will be a donation box this time with all proceeds going to Ken (BM-II) and his family. So, stop by for your morning fix :o, a few pre-battle "fish stories", and, on a more serious note, be generous to Ken's family in any way you can.

Doug

P.S.-Mom wanted you to know that working the R.V. park at Foster Lake in Oregon is not all fun and games....they work two days a week leaving only FIVE days to fish ::)

Are the sweatshirts still a go? *If so, sign me up for a 3XL. *Let me know the price and I will send a check.

SuperDave
09-05-2006, 04:48 PM
Doc,

There appears to be a good list of first timers. The BS thread is no longer Pyramid BS and it would be almost impossible for the first timers to glean any useful information there. Can you broaden this thread a bit or sticky one right under this one, "Pyramid Details"?

That's why I called Crosby's this morning after seeing IT's post. They assured me that my res that was booked 7 weeks ago was still intact and asked me to make sure you guys called.

MM

Crosby's had no more rooms and people on a waiting list for the weekend of the 13th.

Hey MM, as a proactive favor to Frank and Duane I called Crosby's just after you did and sure enough Pink Boat ( Duane ) had no reservation. She began to look and sure enough she found the reservation for the same dates in AUGUST :-X

Appearently they had some summer hires in doing reservations who weren't real to awfully bright. Put that combination together with PB and what do you get.....NO SHOW......

Anyway no one's fault accept Mickey's..................... ;D

Got them all fixed up. 8-) Seems that when the lady I was talking with was telling her boss about the situation this guy calls to cancel one of their new travel trailer units. Boom, presto chango, PB and Frank have a warm and cozy place to hang their hat again. Unfortunately as of today they are full-up.

But, anything can happen. You know how undependable fishermen are ;)

Yeah, I guess it really wasn't fair that some summer hire that according to the lady I spoke with was sorta a total screwup screwed PB and Frank.

She was just doing the right thing and showing excellent customer service. Screwed and unscrewed in one brush stroke. IT to the rescue 8-)

You got that right: I was definately at the boiling point when I went off to work this morning. But thanks to Mickey for alerting me or I would have never known there was a problem since I only glance at this thread periodically.

And a big thanks to IT for jumping in and saving the day. [smiley=thumbsup.gif] Friends like those guys are why I'm still proud to be a Sniffer.

I would like to sign up to attend the Pryamid fest. As a brand new member I look forward to meeting all of you. I have a lot of questions about pyramid, but I will ask them on the B.S. site. I have a 17' lund with a Garmin 250C FF and 2 manual Cannon DR's. I will be going solo so I have an open seat for FRI. late afternoon and all day Sat., so if anyone who knows how to fish the lake needs a ride they are welcome to join me!
Thanks

Well, I'm thinking that I need to get to this Pyramid Fest. Gotta clear it with the wife first so I need a couple of questions answered.

1. Since I'll be bringing my wife and 1 1/2 year old son and we'll be tent camping...does it get to cold for the little ones during that time of year?

2. Will a 16.5 foot pontoon boat with a 50 hp engine be ok on that lake? I've heard it can get pretty rough.

The lake is in high desert country, so the weather can be highly variable. Mid October generally has nice weather with highs in the 60's and lows in the 30's at night. A small pontoon boat would be a stretch, however. If the weather is very nice and you stay close to the ramp, it would be fine. But you would be better off hitching a ride in another boat.

You could also stay at a hotel or casino in Sparks, which is only maybe 35 minutes away.

This sure looks like BS to me. ;)

I'll let the shower, etc. posts stand until tonight and then clean everything up.

Of course people taking showers is a good thing. I like to encourage good hygiene during piscatorial pursuits. 8-)

Doc,
I'll probably just be visiting and not fishing. My daughter has a High School band thingy going on in Reno on Saturday. If I decide to fish (1% chance) I will bring my boat. Metal Mouth can arrange floor space for my sleeping bag, and I'll bring some goodies.
Looking very much forward to seeing everyone.

Hey everyone. New to posting, but have been a lurker for a while. Count me in. I'll be with the whiff, daughter, and probably 2 other fishing buddies. I've got a little 12' alum. Starcraft and a buddy has a 14' alum. Valco we'll bring but will have to keep it close to shore. I'd hate to have it tip and lose all that tackle... :)

With your name, I am guessing that you are with the Air Guard.

I read the regs on no dogs running free.

But

Do they have issues with dogs swimming to fetch their toys or running down their balls on the beach?


They go on all my trips and if they can't come then we will be going else where to.

Dave

drstressor
09-29-2006, 04:39 PM
There will be lots of dogs at the fest and I've never seen anyone hassled for letting dogs swim free in the lake or while under control on the beaches. *They just don't want dogs bothering other campers or chasing cattle.

Imbigdave

Hi Doc!

Finally confirmed that I can attend this great fishing event! *;D *I will be bringing my fishing buddy, GILLCOLLECTOR and possibly my wife if she can get the time off who loves to fish too! * 8-)

I will be bringing my 18' boat. * Not sure on the Rib Dinner yet. *Is there a sign up for the potluck on Saturday or just bring what you want?

This will be a 1st time to Pyramid Lake so although we're rookies at this lake we're really looking forward to just enjoying the scenery and the great company of fellow Fishsniffers! *If we catch any fish that is icing on the cake! * ;)

Put me down for Friday only, other obligations on Saturday :'(. I've tried to find someone to come with me but no luck. There should be plenty of company there. Bringing my 13' Valco and praying for smooth water, will try to hitch a ride if too rough.

Joining Mickey's convoy on Thursday to get bombfire wood there. Got lots, so great fires ;D ;D ;D. Looking forward to meeting a great bunch of Sniffers. *:)
