Beautiful pics, BG. Why do they call it Pyramid Lake? (just kidding)

Powell was off to a slow start with the cooler weather and chilly water, but apparently the fishing has taken off in the last few days.
I caught a striper and a walleye last week, looking forward to some smallmouth bass action in a few days. It's that time of year.

Good deal Bob. That looks like about a 16 pounder.

Great photos as well.

I'll send you a pm if you like and we can exchange some info for the lake if you like.
Not sure how much you've fished it, but I have for over twenty years and I am happy to share.

Peace.

WTF: good guess, that fish was just under 16 lbs.

Love to chat with you about Pyramid Lake sometime! Can't wait to get back there- those Pilot Peak fish are getting bigger and bigger...

Caught this 18 lb. Channel Catfish yesterday at Lake Perris on a black Wolly Bugger from my float tube. One of the toughest battles I've ever had on my 6 weight fly rod!

What size bugger? Was it weighted? But not a trout.

Size 6, tied with about 10 turns of .01 lead wrap, trolled slowly, right on the bottom with an intermediate line.

BG it looks like you are getting on to some real hogs. Nice work.


It's still slow this Spring on Powell, and with the low water years the fishery is suffering.

Still a cool getaway even if the fish aren't blooming.

Caught this 16 pound carp fly fishing at Lake Perris. Pulled me around the lake in my float tube for a half hour before I could get into shore and recruit someone to net it for me. Strong fish!
