    I have seen folks fly fish from a boat north of the Pyramid on that side, due to the fact that it is off limits by the tribe to vehicles and you can't beach your boat either. The Kitchen area is very productive for sure......Jetspray

    The bottom growth is on, as well as the aquatic stuff in it, that's why bottom bouncing works until the growth gets too big. There are bottom dwellers that the big one's like to eat, that is why cop car color works (black & white) because it matches those fish. The trick is to work the shoreline around Warrior Point (the mushroom) and head back towards Pelican doing the best not to hook the bottom. BTW the fish actually come in from the deep, and do that in stages to adjust their bladders......Jetspray

    Re: Trolling Pyramid..... a little help please !

    We were up there a couple weeks ago..fishing a little tough for trollers right now as fish appear to only be interested in spawning(not sure how long that typically lasts)and not feeding, though those fishing from the bank or their ladders seemed to do well...the vast majority of fish seemed to be up close to shore (there were hundreds of fish right on the bank at the boat launch)and the 250' restriction from shore fisherman will keep you away from the best of the action as it was shoulder to shoulder along much of the western shore..we did pick up a few fish trolling Lymans and spoons but nothing like our last trip there in October..my advise would be to hug the shoreline as close as possible without disrupting shore anglers and troll near the bottom...once the spawn ends things should return to a more regular pattern of finding groups of fish holding at similar depths and should be easier to target(they should be plenty hungry by then as well)..good luck and give us a report after your trip!!

    Main thing is to look at the other posts on Pyramid. The guys who fish there regular are showing the things they are using and how deep or at what speed. Following the path to the nets and spawn area is what most of the fish follow. Also when fishing deep and not keeping the fish, you will not be able to get them back down. I usually fish along the shore and stay at the same depth, others like to drag the bottom but that is only good in some areas as the tuffa will snag a DR ball in a hurry.....Jetspray
