Pyramid Lake

Skifih The World with your host Joe Kleitman
Valencia, CA

The lake is approx. 1,360 surface acres at capacity with 21 miles of shoreline and over 700 feet deep in some parts. It is open year round from 6am to 8:30 in the summer, 7am to 5pm during the winter. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Entrance fee is $6.00 per car and $6.00 per trailer. There is no camping on the lake but several campgrounds are located at the Los Alamos and Oak Flat areas.

There are striped bass, trout, large and smallmouth bass, catfish, crappie and bluegill here. Some fairly big stripers up to 40 pounds have been taken here. This place is unique because there are very few lakes in S. Cal. that you can go to and catch a "bassin' Grand Slam" (stripers, largemouth, and smallmouth) all in one day. Minimum size for large and smallmouth bass is 12-inches.
