Nomada @ Pyramid Lake, NV

Pyramid Lake, located near Reno, Nevada, is where the fish of legend are landed on ladders. Yep, ladders, because they get you up out of the water and help aid in sight casting to cruising fish.

Cold and deep, Pyramid Lake holds excellent numbers of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout—the world’s largest cutts! These amazing fish grow HUGE, and it’s not uncommon to see them in the 10 to 20-pound class. Couple that you’re likely to land a personal best trout with an affordable price tag, and you have a top-notch fly fishing trip that won’t break the bank.

From scenic panoramic views to the occasional snow flurry, Pyramid’s remote and rustic charm will appeal to your sense of nature. However, our accommodations in nearby Sparks, Nevada, are warm and dry and provide the comfort you’ll appreciate at the end of each day.

So join the experts at Nomada and experience everything Pyramid has to offer.
