Spoke this morning to the Tribal Office of Pyramid Lake, and rumors and hearsay about opening soon, are false.  NDOT is working on the roads and they are pretty bad.  With the incoming storm, even this is causing a delay, of course.  The tribe is still looking at 5 - 6 weeks before reopening.  We'll keep updating as we check in with them and hear from them directly
Just an update on the next FLY TYING CLASSES:
The 2 day Saturday classes, will be held on the 11th & 18th of February and March
We've added an EVENING CLASS for APRIL!   The evening class will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays,  6 pm - 8 pm for 2 weeks.   Call the shop for more info  775-781-7112  class size is limited for quality instruction!
Dan Kaffer hit Pyramid today.  And then got kicked off after they closed it.
and that's all we have to say about this.....
Love the day that our Hareline Dubbin order comes in.... just like Christmas all over again!
Not our picture, cannot find original poster....  pyramid lake at Truckee inlet
Wondering about snow pack?  How much we lost, how much we gained?  We're doing well with snowpack for the basins and the reservoirs are filling faster than previous years.  More weather stacked up for the next 2 weeks.
Tomorrow snow pack measurements are to be taken, at this time, electronically we are at 67 percent as of the 31st of December ...  at readings last year we were at 103 percent.....  2011 it was 203 percent  and we ended the water measurement  time frame at 156%..... wonder if they'll make it to the spot tomorrow.... possibility of 8' - 12' in the high elevations through this week.
Doesn't look like the Apple falls far from the tree... guess we need to start building her a three weight for next summer
A small report:  Wow, what a year 2016 was!  Biggest thing, we had was: WATER on the Eastern Sierra rivers!  What a difference a year makes, and we're looking forward to the same thing in 2017.
Topaz opens tomorrow, more on that below.
Right now, the weather gurus are predicting a week of snow and some down here in the valley.  Our reservoirs for the tailwater waters are filling very well, with Bridgeport almost 1/2 of it's storage capacity above deadpool.  The rivers are pretty cold right now and we'll look forward to February when the spring fishing starts mid day with a shining sun.  If you have to go out, nymph it, black midges small like 18's or 20's or a san juan.  The takes will be a bit so watch that indicator.
Pyramid Lake is in it's dolldrums.  Not that fish aren't being caught, they are, it's just not off-the-hook!  Some very nice large fish have been caught by the fly guys, and the fish are taking everything from chub patterns like the Loogie, to the Grinch boobie/beetle, and midges and buggers.
Our next fly tying class starts January 7th.  This 2 day class, with materials and tools provided, starts at 8 am.  We have just a couple of seats open, if you're interested in getting started on your own fly box for the Summer.  The cost is $75.00
The International Sportsman's Expo will be in Sacramento starting on the 19th of January.  We'll be there doing some fly tying demonstrations on Sunday afternoon, followed up with our Annual Spey Switch Clinic on the American River.  Gear can be provided and the cost is $75.00, we have only 2 spots left for this.
So, Topaz Lake opens tomorrow morning....  weather guru's are saying a 30 percent chance of snow at best... which most likely doesn't count for there, but up in the mountains.  We've had some pretty brutally cold openers there, this year's should be a little more pleasant!  (it's a dry cold, Don't chya know?) The lake is higher than it has been in the previous 5 years, boat launching should be easy.  You'll need a 2016 Nevada or a 2017 CA license to fish there.  One note on fishing the South end where the inlet canal comes in....  have your NEW Ca license if you fish there and it is BARBLESS, CATCH & RELEASE, NO BAIT in that inlet canal area (it is also private property, but we do know people will throw something into it).  It's an easy ticket for the Warden and a chunk of change for the law breaker..  so check your gear.
We look forward to a great 2017, with water in our rivers.
A blessed Happy New Year to you all !
