Clean up crews and volunteers have been working to clean up debris left in the aftermath of the Tule Fire surrounding the small community of Sutcliffe, NV at Pyramid Lake. The Tribe worked with first responders to evacuate the town and get the wild fire contained. A few small structures were destroyed, and an elderly couple had to be rescued, but overall no one was harmed and the blaze is now 100% contained.
The community is now gearing up for Burning Man coming in late August, as well as the opening day of fishing season Oct. 1. En route to Burning Man thousands of visitors pass through Pyramid Lake’s small town of Nixon, Nevada. Convenience store workers stay busy around the clock 24 hours a day to ring up the eccentric guests coming from around the world headed to the desert festival.
We’re certain the non-stop week long party is a great time, but we will have to take your word for it! We are saving our energy for the upcoming Lahontan Cutthroat Trout season opener- starting Oct. 1, 2016. Get your lines ready- we can’t wait for the hunt for the World’s Largest Cutthroat Trout to begin once again. See you soon!
