About Pyramid Lake and its people
Pyramid Lake is about 35 miles northeast of Reno and is the property of and managed by the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. Pyramid Lake is known as being North America’s most beautiful desert lake and home to many year-round recreational activities. The lake occupies 112,000 surface acres inside the reservation boundary and has a shoreline of approximately 125 miles. The lake has no outlet and is a residual body remaining from the prehistoric Great Lake Lahontan water body. The lake is fed primarily by the Truckee River and is world famous fishery for the Lahontan cutthroat trout and cui-ui, which are on the endangered species list. The Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation comprises 476,728 acres. The roughly 2,400 tribal members are direct descendants of the Northern Paiute people who have occupied the vast areas of the Great Basin for thousands of years. Pyramid Lake was designated as one of the first National Scenic Byways in the country and was the first scenic byway entirely on an Indian reservation.
