Heavy boat traffic made for tough fishing conditions

Pyramid Lake, CA - Caswell, CA (Los Angeles County)

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

The lake rose to 92 percent of capacity, and water temperatures were in the mid-seventies. Heavy boat traffic made for tough fishing conditions, but it also provided an opportunity for bass and striped bass anglers. Squarebill crankbaits and jerkbaits fooled fish in the mudlines created by heavy boat traffic. Most of the strikes came on the pause. Large and smallmouth also ate deep diving crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and topwater lures. Reaction bait fishing has been good at Pyramid, but finesse baits fooled plenty of fish as well. Striper anglers did well on cut baits, lugworms and garlic scented nightcrawlers. Catfish anglers scored bites in Tin Cup and Yellowbar on dip bait, nightcrawlers, and cut sardines.
