A Reno man caught the biggest cutthroat trout from Pyramid Lake in at least five years, said an official from the Pyramid Lake Fisheries. 

Ed Smith was fly fishing with a black wooly bugger from shore at the North Nets on Wednesday when he hooked, landed and released a 24 pound, 36-inch cutthroat trout.

The fish was alert when released and was able to swim away.

The trout had a tag that identified it as a Pilot Peak Lahontan Cutthroat Trout. It was stocked in Pyramid on May 30, 2007 when it was 8.3 inches long. The fish grew 27.7 inches in 66 months, nearly a half-an inch per month.

This season has been a great one for big fish at Pyramid Lake with a lot of 10-pound plus fish being caught.
