You may have never heard of it, but Nevada’s Pyramid Lake is one of the best places in the western US for anglers who come to the bright-blue, high-desert lake to catch fish as large as 20 pounds.
The fishing hotspot is in Nevada’s Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Pyramid Lake is known for its deep blue waters and impressive limestone formations. The lake’s enormous size (30 miles long and 10 miles wide) makes it an ideal place for fishing and boating activities. Pyramid Lake also has stunning views during sunset when the sky turns that beautiful shades of pink and orange and the colors reflect on the lake.
