Fishing

It may be a high desert state, but Nevada is still home to hundreds upon hundreds of lakes, ponds, reservoirs, streams and rivers. Altogether, the Silver State boasts nearly 400,000 surface acres of water. And that means impressive fishing no matter what end of the state you happen to be exploring.

Pyramid Lake
Reno, NV

One of the most fascinating lakes in Nevada shimmers like a mirage out of the stark surrounding desert landscape, with its defining pyramid-shaped island rising dramatically out of the water. The unusual saltwater lake known as Pyramid Lake is named for its notable rock formation, which sits just off the eastern shore.

Pyramid Lake is a remnant of the ancient Lake Lahontan and is entirely enclosed today on the Paiute Indian Reservation. A geographical coincidence preserved this segment of Lake Lahontan, which today measures roughly 15 miles by 11 miles with a depth of 350 feet.
