Going to fish Pyramid from shore on Wednesday and/or Saturday. I want to fish at Popcorn if I can find it after 33 years. Any reports on how the fishing is and what I should be using? Any help would be appreciated.

Captain,

I fished at Block House last week and just used spoons. The frog pattern was the productive spoon that afternoon.

Popcorn is at the far south end of the lake and there should be a sign marking the location.

I agree with BigB. I went last sunday with Ed and the frog colored daredevil was the hot ticket for me, and size didn't matter :P A couple 8lbers were landed right next to us so there are nice fish in close. I think anything green with a little red on it will work. We landed 6 and hooked into 10+.

OK. The consensus so far seems to be fish Block House with frog patterned spoons. I know BH is up the beach aways from Popcorn is the road marked?

No such thing as bad weather at Pyramid. ;D I'm not sure what day(s) I'll be there. There is a fellow Sniffer who wants to go with me but he has to get permission from the wife.:-* If he can go then I will be there Saturday for sure. If not I'll be there Weds. Heck I might be there both days anyway. ;) Where ever I fish I'll arrive there between 7 and 8 in the morning. I'll know more Monday evening and I'll let you know. I've got lots of Kastmasters but I don't know where to get a Frog Kastmaster.

they got all the hardware you need at the pyramid lake store. I hear green with red dots is working well from shore. 7/8 spoon good luck and try not to freeze. ;)

Thanks for the info. I've got three 7/8 spoons. Orange with black dots. Chartreuse with black dots and a large Apex spoon in fire-tiger. I'm going on Wednesday and I'll pick up what has been recommened to me at the store.

Ok as thing stand I'm going both Wednesday and Saturday. Wednesday Mrs Compassion will be driving so that means I won't be so early and I won't fish so much. We will go to Sutcliff first get some tags and a couple of lures and arrive at BH between 10:30 or so. We will be in a small green Ponitac. On Saturday I will arrive at the lake arround 8:00 and will be in a big black 4-runner with oversize tires. Where I fish Saturday depends on information I gather on Wednesday. Hope to see you.

Captain,

To answer your question, yes Block House does have a sign next to the roadway marking the location.

Can you fish there with your California fishing licence? If not, how much is a none res. licence?

okie
12-10-2007, 05:39 PM
mr striper, you need a permit from the pyramid tribe, you can get one at sportsmans warehouse, at the winners corner on pyramid and eagle canyon, at the store right after you enter the reservation or at crosby's lodge. good luck

No Cal or Nevada licence needed. You have to get an Indian Permit that is $9 a day.

Mr. Ed got that right... there are shore fishing locations as good or better than Block House; depends on the day.... If you want easy-to-get-to, a place with stars on the ****ter, Block House is where you want to go. It's right past the Rawhide lookout.

Thanks everyone I'm there. The stars on the potty tipped the balance. 8-)

She is talking about us going to Seco on Saturday for her to take her standard 3 or 400 pics of nature while I fish.

CC, don't worry about arriving late at this time of year for Pyramid, it's been my experience the best bite is middle of the day fishing from shore this time of year.
I've been fishing from the shore since October, and my best bite has come from 10 AM till 230 PM, last week I got there at first light to join the hordes of folks that didn't get fish till about 930 AM, seems it takes the fish an hour or two to adjust to the sunlight after it hits the water.
I'm betting the surface temp right now is 48 degrees or less. Good luck!

That's pretty darn accurate, HikenFish, at least this year. I've fished Pyramid 13 days so far this year, fishing from a boat, covering a lot of water, and if you miss the 10 to 2:30 bite you're out of luck. There is an early morning bite, but it's real short and not very good. And after 2:30 the lake has gone dead. Any fish we've caught after 2:30 this year have been few and far between.

sorry i can't make it tomorrow, i just recv'd some 'honey dos' for tomorrow, something about hanging Christmas lights. hopefully next time.
and sam, the last time i got out there at 530, they didn't start bitin until around 9. i almost froze what little tail i have the last 2 times too. 9-10 is a good time for me.
