Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe opens lake to limited recreational use
February 22, 2017
After over two months of recovery from extensive flood damage, the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe has opened some areas of Pyramid Lake to the public for recreational activities including fishing, boating, camping, and day use. The Tribe has designated the beaches from North Nets to Shot Dog as open to the public, effective Saturday, February 18, 2017.
Tribal Chairman, Vinton Hawley, stated “These particular beaches are accessible by the public, however, caution should be taken when using any of the beach access roads due to damage caused by flooding and on-going runoff.” Hawley also urges the public to be aware that that the floods and fluctuating water levels and erosion have resulted in new drop-off areas, unstable sand walls, and debris in the beach areas.
