Got this today:

"Although the fire season is progressing on the Tahoe NF in a fashion that we used
to call "normal", the typical indices that we use to restrict fires to "safe" areas,
have not been reached yet. The public, however, is used to us implementing
fire restrictions annually. In some years, the number of fire restrictions increases
have had significant impacts on the public mostly related to "internal combustion
engine use on NFS trails and roads"... (limiting OHV use).

In that last ten years, we have implemented fire restrictions any where from the end of May
to early July.
* In 5 of the 10 years, we increased the restrictions by the end of July.
* In one of those years, we increased the restrictions a third time.
* Only once in the last ten years...2003?...we did not have any fire restrictions.

Given the late snow/rains, the less than stellar heat and cool nights to-date, there is a
strong possibility we may not need to implement fire restrictions this year. The type of circumstances
which we would cause us to seriously consider implementing fire restrictions would be situations
such as an aggressive drying trends (for example, several days of strong E-NE winds), or have a
significant lightning/multiple large wildfires that depletes our initial attack capability.

So, the answer is the we may not go into fire restrictions this year, unless weather patterns change."

Hope for continued cool weather and no E-NE winds but still be careful with the fires!

This is no time for campfires. It’s even more imperative that abandoned campfire should be 100% extinguished and not just 80%. This holds true thoughout out the year. It seems obvious but apparently not between Friday evening and Saturday 6am just above the water tank during Trek. Just saying….don’t be a dumbfawkstick.

Put Your Fires Out

Went for some easy wheeling today 21st to check out the lake and falls. While driving past camping spots on the way to the dam, saw 2 fire rings with smoldering logs, went on to below dam. On the way back 20min later, saw the logs in full flame with sparks blowing from incoming storm, and pine needles everywhere. Got out the shovel and did a complete bury of rings. Seems to me, if a person can light a fire they can also put it out. Plus I think it's still no campfires, as it's dry as hell out there.

I hate finding fires not put out. Hopefully after tomorrow it will be a non issue. Thanks for taking the time to do what others should have.
