Pyramid Lake closes June 30

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.
