After weeks of storm-related uncertainty, the club will be fishing Pyramid Lake for Lahontan Cutthroat trout that can easily run to 10 pounds, or more! The club has arranged the trip with Rob Anderson's guide service. This is our fourth year with Rob and he does this right! Jeff Franzini, our outings chair, is coordinating for the club.
Our group fishing days are Tuesday, April 4th and Wednesday, April 5th. We have two guides for our group who will be there to grab our beach site, setup the ladders, and help throughout the day. The cost will be about $220 for each person which includes both days of fishing, the ladder & gear, and breakfast and lunch each day. Bring a check or cash for payment directly to either of the guides and a little extra for a tip.
If you have not been on this trip before, I would recommend giving yourself some extra time to stop by Cabelas or Scheels in Reno (we always need something). And don't forget to bring some kind of camping/folding chair to use at the lake. Rob's crew provides food and water but chairs can be an issue.
For those staying at the Nugget Hotel, plan on carpooling or following each other on the first fishing day so that we make sure everyone makes it to the correct spot. As of today, the meeting place will be Pelican Point which is a large beach area north of the marina. The time for the meeting will be emailed out before Tuesday, but plan on being at the beach before sunrise. And don't forget to go online and purchase & print your tribal fishing permit. http://www.pyramidlake.us/pyramid-lake-permits.html
For those planning on camping, Rob recommends you camp at Pelican Point (a large area with lots of camping space). Make sure to get your tribal camping permits and fishing license online and print a second copy for your windshield. http://www.pyramidlake.us/pyramid-lake-permits.html
The tribal police take their job seriously. Last year they had each of us walk back to shore to verify that we had a valid fishing permit on us.
Since the actual fishing beach will probably be a last minute decision, Rob feels that Pelican Point is close enough to where he would like to fish and if needed the group can follow the guide to the actual fishing beach.
By this weekend I'll email out contact info for Rob and a couple of the club members who will be on the trip and should have cell service. They can help with any last minute issues that come up.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
