Winnemucca Lake

Winnemucca Lake, located just east of Pyramid Lake in northwestern Nevada, was formerly a shallow tule-filled lake and an important stop for migrating waterfowl. Subsequent to the construction of Derby Dam on the Truckee River, and SR 447 which blocked the slough connecting it to Pyramid Lake, Winnemmucca Lake dried out and has been dry since the 1930s.
