TULE FIRE THREATENS HOMES AT PYRAMID LAKE, NV- EVACUATION MANDATORY

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families being evacuated at Pyramid Lake due to a wild fire started by lightning. Pyramid Lake Guides functions out of Sutcliffe, NV during the winter fishing season, and out of Dutch John, UT under Dry Fly Utah during the summer fishing season. This week marks the renewal of our fishing guide’s licensing for Pyramid. Originally scheduled for this Friday’s Tribal meeting, our plans to visit our beloved Sutcliffe guiding location changed about two weeks ago due to the bookings in Utah so we didn’t make it out to the Reno area– and we consider ourselves blessed. The Tribe was kind enough to extend our renewal license via mail.

Fire

Our home location on Pyramid Lake was evacuated yesterday and has been out of power for two days, with three or more days likely due to power lines and poles being destroyed in the Tule Fire.┬áThankfully the winds have died down in the area immediately surrounding Sutcliffe so homes are not in imminent danger anymore, but northern areas are still at high risk. We are praying for the safety of the Capurro family and their ranch(es). Crosby Lodge is unharmed (thank the Lord!). Donations are being transported to locals for ice/water/diapers/food/and other necessities. Keep praying for the families of Pyramid Lake and for the Emergency Responders/Firefighters! Thank you to the volunteers and to the Tribe for updates, and for providing shelter to those in need at the Nixon Gym. Our prayers are with you! (The hills will look a bit bare when the season opens October 1- we don’t think the Lahontan Cutty will mind!)
