The weather has been mild enough so that we've done some fly fishing on local moving waters. It hasn't been torrid action but fish are being brought to the net; rainbows to 18 inches. Yesterday I fished Pyramid Lake. Fishing was very slow for us eight Tahoe-Truckee Fly Fishers' group-fish (in lieu of "fishout"). It was reeeeeally slow, but one decent cutthroat in the 4-5 pound range was landed.
