PRESENTATION – PYRAMID LAKE:
ABOUT PYRAMID LAKE:
Pyramid Lake is the geographic sink of the Truckee River Basin, 40 mi (64 km) northeast of Reno, Nevada. Pyramid Lake is fed by the Truckee River, which is mostly the outflow from Lake Tahoe.
Pyramid Lake is the only remnant of ancient Lake Lahontan that contains Lahontan cutthroat trout and Cui-ui. Tui chub and Tahoe sucker are two other fish species that also evolved in Lake Lahontan to make up the fish community present today.
Pyramid Lake is truly a World-class fishing destination, when the fishing is good. Being successful here whether you fish in a boat or from shore is a matter of knowing where, when and how to fish for the sporting fish of this picturesque desert lake.
