    Re: PYRAMID & STAMPEDE

    By the middle of May (most years) many of the fish will have given up trying to spawn and not all of the fish try to spawn each year. So you should get some action at the usual deeper spots on the east side off the walls. The feeding fish are not deep but they can be over deep water. They will hit the usual chub imitation lures.

    There will still be a lot of cruisers moving along in 1-2' of water off the beaches. Many people think that the spawners are only on the west side, primarily around the nets. But they are wrong. You can find groups of fish cruising the shallows just about anywhere along the sand or gravel beaches.

    The spawners only bite sporadically, but the bite can be wide open if you get lucky and match the hatch. Fish cruising the shallows will never see a chub (except for the big spawning chubs) this time of year. The only bait they see in close are midges, dragonfly nymphs, and leeches. So dragging Lymans or spoons in front of them that look like chubs is usually a waste of time. You can often get aggression strikes from them using red or silver lures, the bigger the better. Otherwise, troll flies if you fish the beaches. That's what I do this time of year.

    and my duo counter rotating props !

    So, I guess I'll try and dust off the side planners. Will that work on the East side?

    Mako,
    I though you were going to Pyramid?
    I talked to Barry last night he said he caught an 8lb Mack and a few others were catching a few big ones but the bite isn’t very hot they had to work for it.

    Bait, spinners, Rapalas, flys........... ;)

    Even Frenchman or Davis will work *in the wind, since *90% of the time
    it is a West wind !!

    Naturally these are a no boat fishing thing..........

    Boats will work on Frenchman & Davis if you know the lakes.

    Ed,
    Your so cute Sparks Marina is a joke [smiley=shocked.gif]I can’t believe you fish there
    I have tried the Truckee doesn’t work for me my lures are to big
    We went to Stampede because Barry was there
    I do pretty well at Frenchman’s and Davis when I have the right guide ::)

    Gill,
    It should be a great weekend at Pyramid I’m picking up my boat on Sat and will be fishing Sunday at Pyramid with Fishing Buddy in my boa ;)t
