Fall is in the air. 30 days to go before the opener. There have already been some cool nights in the area and the water is already cooling a bit. We are looking forward to getting some time on the water. If this year is anything like last the fall could play out like this.
In early October the water will still be really warm. Bait ball of Tui Chubs can be seen from many different beaches all over the lake. The bait can handle a little warmer water than the trout so the bait will be there and the fish will move in and out chasing them around but spending more time in 10-30 feet of water where it is a little cooler. Float Tubes and Pontoon Boats can be a good way to go for a few weeks until the water cools more. Maholo Nymphs, Balanced Minnows and Balanced Leeches are all good bets fished under an indicator in deeper water. 10-20 feet down can be necessary. Shooting Heads fished near the bottom in deeper water with some type of Wooly Bugger or Minnow Pattern will do the trick. Be aware of weedy areas around the lake.
As the water cools in late October the fish tend to move in a little closer to shore. There are not so many fish but the chance to catch a big fish increases daily. By mid November there should be plenty of stories going around about big fish that have been caught. Finding fish and keeping out of the summer weed growth on the bottom will be somewhat important until it dies back. Beetles and Tadpoles like the White Ghost are a good way to try to avoid the weeds. Mid November through early December is a great time to be on the water at Pyramid and is a great time to try to catch a big fish. By mid December the weather could bring water temperatures down and the fish will head out to deeper water and the fish count will start to drop as winter sets in.
