Pyramid Lake Fishing Guide Report 11/06/2015
Pyramid Lake Bass Fishing Guide Report 11/06/2016 – Pyramid Lake received its first trout plant of the fall season Wednesday, November 2 at 4 PM in the afternoon. I spoke with some lake personnel after the plant and they told me they were the largest trout they'd ever seen planted there in 14 years. For anglers interested in going trout fishing things look very promising. But it did little to spark the striped bass action. Fishing remains fair at best and some days last week were very beautiful and calm and I saw little to no striper action at all. The largemouth fishing is fair at best. Once again this is a classic time of year at this lake but fishing remains slow. We're going to keep an I on it and report any improving action as soon as it happens. Water temperatures remain 66°.

We will use this boat throughout the entire winter season fishing striped bass at Castaic Lake and Pyramid Lake and in the summer of 2017 this boat will run coastal fishing trips from Malibu to Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands. I will be running all of the striped bass fishing trips this winter and in the summer of 2017 we will hire a fantastic licensed saltwater captain to run trips along the Ventura coastline and Channel Islands. This boat will comfortably fish 1 to 4 people for all of its freshwater striped bass fishing trips and all saltwater fishing trips will be limited to 2 persons maximum.
