Looking forward to the report, hope it goes well!

Those fish are beautiful.


So are boats and/or float tubes not allowed at Pyramid? Just curious because I never seen them in all of your pics?

They are allowed but you better pay attention as it goes from glass to raging sea pretty quick.
I don稚 float tube out there myself but I do take the drift boat from time to time.

Come up sometime and get into a few. Bring micro and if you come on a weekend I値l show you around if I知 able to get out.

Thanks Fritz, and good luck to you Stimbo. I have a feeling you'll get a hog.

Well, no hogs caught by our group but plenty of "hog-lets." If you caught them on any other body of water you would be ecstatic but at Pyramid, they seem puny. No complaints though, every hookup was exciting. We fished two and a half days and caught them mainly on midges with an occasional cutty taken on stripped beetles. It was a great time, I cannot wait to return.

Right on Jim. Come back in a few weeks when the water temps are up a bit and slay away with me.

I値l be camped out there the night of the 5,6,7 heading home on the 8 th in the late afternoon.

Limpingcrab n Micro come up its like three free days of guide service as my other three guide buddies will be on site as well. I値l help you with flies and whatever else you need.

8wt with a shooting head and a 6 wt indicator set up will get you where you need to be.

1. Nice fish Jim! I've never caught anything remotely close to something that large. Well done. Glad you got some quality time with some quality fish and your son.

2. WTF that is an amazing offer. Truly appreciated. I will talk to Limpingcrab and we'll see if we can make it happen!

3. Limpingcrab CALL ME!

OK WTF, limpingcrab and I got the green light from our wives and we are good to go! I repeat, we are good to go. We would love to have you show us around up there. Neither of us have fished that kind of water ever and despite our lifetime trout addiction this will be the first time throwing rigs of that size for trout of that size.

My cell number is (559) nine seven four - 2662.
Or email me at jetthousehold@gmail.com

Would you mind calling or texting (or email.... whatever is easiest for you) so we can get some details? Really looking forward to it. Thank you again in advance for the offer. And our apologies if we catch all the big fish and leave none for anybody else that day.

Hell yeah guys looking forward to meeting you guys.

You guys have 8 wt and shooting heads? I snapped a rod yesterday so I知 down a rod. I have an extra that will work for one of you.

Scott I値l call you tonight. You guys are going to have a blast. I値l tie you some flies as well.

The report from yesterday is a mixed bag. Brutal cold in the am. I got in the water about 5:45 am made three casts and snapped that rod. Had to go rig the extra chug a Chelada and get back in. Frozen rod guides for two more hours and only two fish. I fished until 1 got out and took a nap for an hour. Got back in and stuck a couple more missed several and froze my nuts off. Snow hail wind and sun. Weather was crazy all day.

The temps will be picking up this week which will help bug life Tremendously.

Stimbo! Nice fish, great photos!

WTF! Oh man, it sounds like an ugly day for you. I've never actually broken a rod while fishing. I prefer to slam them in car doors. As for line freezing in the guides, I used to hate it when that happened. Now, I just quit fishing & go someplace warmer.

Winter lingers on in Idaho. Avid anglers have been reduced to desperation fishing in our abundant spring potholes.

WTF that's great! Give me a holler any time this evening.

Sounds perfect.

This winter on the Lower Kings I took a swim while air temp was right around 33 degrees out. Had to call Limpingcrab to bring me dry clothes. He lives fifteen minutes from the river and was there for me in my time of need.

I'm wearing limpingcrab's jacket in this photo. No shame.  But filling...

Micro if you池e swimming in pyramid it痴 due to three things.

1. You fell off your ladder
2. You致e had too many beers
3. Combo of the first two.

All are acceptable in my opinion. Just not recommended but acceptable.

I値l call you later to give you the list of supplies you値l need.


Fritz you kill me with your humor. That looks like brown trout water if you ask me.

And here I was thinking that there wouldn't be anything but a few little brookies in that pot hole.

Those potholes are decieving...sometimes you hook up with a lunker brown who is feeding on the brookies. Fritz told me he once got a four kilo brown out of a pothole with a garden rake.
