The lake and the fisherman (especially at the nets during spawning time) really never kept fish or abused the fishery. In fact, before they closed the nets and turned to barbless hooks catch rates were the highest I’ve ever experienced in my 20 some years of fishing the lake. This led me to not buy an annual license for the following years; and I’m sure others followed, resulting in a loss of overall revenue and angler dissatisfaction. Get out there while you can. Enjoy the pictures. Good luck. got a new fisheries manager and decided the nets shouldn’t be closed as long as they were. This is extremely good news for fly fisherman, or any fisherman for that matter. My dad and I got there on Mon. 4/4 and it was - as usual - awesome! We caught lots of fish. They tend to hit very lightly so keep your attention on your retrieve. This is good news for all, because in my biological opinion Pyramid lake didn’t need any new “management”.
