I think October through May is the big window for Pyramid Lake and it's giant Cutthroat trout.
Sense they found the old strain of giants that might reach 40# some day it has gained a new life.
Some of the California fly fishing clubs have annual outings up there.
There some good guide/instructors too.
We have good reports on our forum too.
Maybe some of you guys can get together a little weekend outing?
Or just tell us when you are going up there?
Just don't go on a full moon.
