Anglers are ringing in the new year with streamers this January on the Green! The weather has cleared up from lots recent fog and inversion, but still cold. If you are willing to brave the drift down the river in January temps the streamer fishing is reported to be great. The trout are also up for eating small midge patterns, and BWO’s in certain areas. Bundle up and get out there! Send us your pictures, and like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/dryflyutah.

If you’re looking for alternative fishing destinations in winter time, consider heading west to Pyramid Lake, Nevada- home of the world’s largest cutthroat trout- the Pilot Peak strain of Lahontan Cutthroat. Guides on Pyramid Lake report monster fish in higher numbers than past years. A small fish caught on this amazing lake is usually around 20″, and the more coveted size is closer to 20 pounds! Since the reintroduction of this massive strain in 2006 the largest we have heard of is 28 pounds and we are waiting in anticipation or someone to break that 30 pound mark! Put this destination on your bucket list and contact us for all your guiding, fishing, and lodging needs. Check out Pyramid Lake Guides website, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Instagram @pyramidlakeguides for the most up to date fishing conditions. Pyramid Lake Nevada is on the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Reservation 25 miles north of Reno.
