  1. Awesome articles Jon, both Pyramid Lake and Lake Davis are amazing still-water fisheries. I know the LCT in Pyramid Lake are unable to spawn naturally; can the rainbows in Lake Davis spawn successfully in the wild?

    1. Actually there is a small number of Pilot Peak strain cutthroats that have spawned in the Truckee river the last few years, but you're right, most go to the hatchery. In regards to Lake Davis, there is some spawning in the creeks, but many dry up and the fingerlings become raccoon food. During the last couple spawns the creeks never flowed with enough water for the rainbows to go up and do their thing. Lake Davis is managed as a put and take fishery. I just wish the limit was like Eagle Lake; limit of 2 and 4 in possession, instead of a limit of 5 with 10 in possession.

    2. I agree, especially with the Lake Davis still recovering from the rotenone treatment. Hopefully one day these fish will be able to spawn naturally and the regulations will change.
      Thanks for the interesting facts Jon, tight lines!
