Do you want to improve your fishing skills? Do you want to catch more and more fish species to boost your experience and knowledge? Are you planning a fishing trip to Nevada? Is the Lahontan cutthroat trout on your fishing checklist? If you answered yes to these questions, this blog post is for you.
The first place that comes to our mind when we think of Lahontan Cutthroat trout is the pyramid lake — the place known for its giant cutthroat trout. But pyramid lake is not the only place where you can catch them. There are more adventurous places in Nevada where you can find this unique specie of trout.
Here is where we found the Lahontan cutthroat trout in Nevada:
Some time ago, there was a lake: lake Lahontan — full of Lahontan cutthroat trout. It is dried up now, but the small isolated streams that come from mountains still carry a huge population of the Lahontan cutthroat trout. You can look for fish in these small streams coming out of Nevada. As you can see in the video, our team found one of these spots in a tiny creek.
The fish in these streams are relatively small in size but extremely beautiful. You will feel awe, wonder, and adoration when you will catch them and hold them in your hand. You can also find the native redband trout in these spots.
The overall experience of fishing in these small creeks is very different from fishing in the pyramid lake. In the pyramid lake, you stand and cast from the ladder, whereas, in the small creeks, you feel more engaged in the activity.
The areas close to these tiny creeks are in themselves extremely beautiful zones. They are open and fresh desert-like areas with beautiful aspen trees. A trip to these spots will refresh your mind and make you feel calm and relaxed. It will take you closer to nature and give you a different experience.
The local people in these areas are very friendly and helpful. They can guide you to areas where you can easily find fish.
Let’s get practical
If you love such fishing adventures then you need to make sure your fishing gear is lightweight and easy to carry. And if you are a beginner, it should be easy to use and effective too. The Tenkara Rod ticks these and all other boxes of perfect fishing gear. It uses just a rod, tippet, line, and fly. These ‘tenkara style’ rods have been time-tested and loved by people in Japan for centuries — and are here to stay in the U.S.
