You must fish with artificial flies or lures only.

There is a two-trout possession limit.

You can keep two trout which are 16-19 inches in length or you can keep one trout 16-19 inches plus one trout over 24 inches.

You will be fishing on the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation and will need a tribal fishing permit. The cost per person is $6 for a one-day permit or $32 annually.
