Pyramid Lake closes June 30

Don Quilici

Pyramid Lake, which is about 30 miles north of Sparks will close to fishing for Lahontan cutthroat trout on Friday, June 30.

That lake has a three month closure, each year, July 1 through Sept. 30.

On October 1, it will re-open for the 2006-2007 cutthroat trout fishing season.

You do not need a Nevada fishing license nor a Nevada Trout Stamp to fish at this lake. However, you need a Pyramid Lake Tribal fishing permit.

Note No. 1: The recognized world record Lahontan cutthroat trout was caught at Pyramid Lake in 1925. It weighed 41 pounds.

Note No. 2: The largest cutthroat caught since official records were first established in 1968 is a 23-pound, 8-ounce Cutt caught on Feb. 10, 1977.
