October Surf Fishout
Fishmaster: Sam Bishop
The last official surf fishout of the year is Saturday morning, October 10th. It will be at Rio Del Mar Beach, starting at 7 am. It is a great way to start the weekend, fishing and watching the dolphins, whales, whatever. There is nothing quite like seeing four or five dolphins surfing right in front of you! I will have stripping baskets to loan (or sell) and flies available, just bring your rod, reel and enthusiasm.
Take Rio Del Mar Blvd. all the way to the beach, make a left turn around the round-about, and drive 1/2 mile down Beach Drive to the entrance to the State Beach. There is plenty of parking outside. For the newbies, to fly fish the surf, please go to our website and click on the surf fishing link on the left side panel.

This will be a four-day fishout. We will be camping on the Medieros side. I will be at the lake on Thursday, October 22nd, at about 12:00 noon. You can contact me on my cell phone, number is 831-713-6835, if you get lost or can't find the campsite.
Driving directions to boat launch area:
Take Hwy 152 to the O'Neill Forebay and look for the San Luis Creek Recreational Area entrance, which is marked by a sign on Hwy 152 as you descend down the hill that is near the face of the dam. The turn-off will be towards the bottom of the descent.
Driving Directions to camp grounds on Medeiros side:
Take Hwy 152 and continue past the boat launch entrance to the Hwy 33 exit Take that exit and head north (turn left). Continue about 1/3 mile north on Hwy 33 to the Medeiros Recreation Area where you will turn left. Continue through the entrance past the kiosk until you get to a T-intersection, turn left and drive up the shoreline, keeping the lake to the right of you. We will camp along the lake (Hwy 152 should be on your left), near the big power line towers. Camping/parking fees are paid at the entrance self-pay station. Note that two vehicles can "share" a "site" (there aren't any sites per se, but you can list a second vehicle on your camping fee slip). Make your own arrangements to pair up with another camper to split the cost.
Rods: 5-7 weight rods; Lines: sinking lines (type IV thru VI, Rio striper lines, T-140, or leadcore will all work), floating lines.

* New Ladder Regulation at Pyramid Lake
Posted by Rob Anderson on 2015-09-27 17:39:35, on Dan Blanton's bulletin board
New Tribal Regulation effective October 1st 2015
15.6 USE OF LADDERS, ETC. Any ladders, milk crates, boxes or other objects used in the water as a fishing aid must be occupied or closely attended (i.e. remain in the area) by fishermen at all times. Any person who leaves such objects unoccupied in the water for more than one hour will be deemed guilty of littering.
15.6.1 Fishing aids described above must have a permanent tag affixed that has the name, address, and phone number of the owner of the fishing aid. If the permitted angler using the fishing aid is not the owner, the owner will be the responsible party for any infractions by the permitted angler.
We have made it easy for anglers to obtain tags for ladders. Our new Ladder I.D. tags are made with anodized aluminum and your information is engraved into the surface. The tags can be attached to ladders easily with nuts and bolts, screws or rivets.
$12.00 is the total cost including tax and shipping. There are two options for delivery:
1. Free shipping to you anywhere in the U.S.
2. Pick up at Mark Fore and Strike Fly Fishing store in Reno
Just order from our website, www.pyramidlakefishing.com and choose your delivery option. Mark Fore and Strike will install tags onto ladders that are picked up at the store.
