They have a selection at crosbys... not sure on that particular fly though.
Call them... they are usually very helpful

Not a report, but some great info on current Pyramid Cutthroats..................

"The following is no fish tale:
Today a gentleman who has fished Pyramid for years caught his dream fish! This fish weighed in at a whopping 24 pounds and was 36 inches long! It was caught at an undisclosed location and if I tell you I would have to kill you. Jk. The weight and length was verified by him and another person and it was weighed on 2 different scales. They took pictures and released the fish. I will post the pictures as soon as I get them."

"This picture is from Ed Smith himself. He came in to our offices and gave us the story firsthand, he caught this monster with a black wooly bugger at North Nets. He still gets weak in the knees when he tells the story. If there is anyone who deserves to catch a fish of this caliber, it is him. The best part of the story is that he made sure the fish was alert and ready to swim when he released it. The fish had a yellow floy tag and this identified it as a Pilot Peak LCT. According to David Miller, Biologist for USFWS it was stocked into Pyramid on 5/30/2007 at Popcorn. It was 8.3 inches when stocked and grew 27.7 inches in 66 months in the lake. That's a average growth per month of 0.42 inches!"

you'd have the most success just emailing him directly about the Nymphs you want.

Just got back from Pyramid... I traveled up this past Sunday and hit the South Beaches. Found one in particular that was giving up fish. While everyone was complaining of 2-3 fish days and many others skunked, I was able to bring in 10-15 each day. While certainly not an epic outing, the size of the fish were. Caught many in the 27" range. Gentlmen next to me landed a 19.25 lb'er that was very impressive. Once the pattern was known the fishing was great. I will upload the toad pic shortly.

The non-Pyramid lake Lahontons Cutts introduced after 1938 ( Dam was built upstream which killed of the original PLLCT) do not acquire the size of the original Pyramid lake Lahonton Cutts. The original Pyramid lake Lahonton Cutt genetics from prior to 1938 have been located in a small stream on Pilot Peak on the UT-NV border several years ago. These original strain Pyramid Lake LCTs were propagated in a hatchery and have been introduced back into Pyramid lake. The original strain
prior to 1938 was reported to a maximum of 60 pounds eating Tui Chubs. I visited a tiny private hatchery in someone's yard at the base of Pilot Peak in the early 1990's.
