Free Firewood

A Notice to the Public about Fuelwood from the Lassen National Forest

SUSANVILLE, Calif., June 15, 2020 – As the impacts from COVID-19 continue to be felt across the country, we remain committed to providing services on our public lands and doing what we can to help those in need. As such, the Lassen National Forest (LNF) will provide free personal use firewood permits through September 30, 2020.

“While permits and tags will now be required for firewood cutters, the public will not need to pay for them until after September 30,” said Deb Bumpus, Forest Supervisor, LNF. “This action follows the Regional Forester’s letter of June 5, 2020, which authorized free personal use firewood on all National Forests in California for the remainder of the fiscal year. You can obtain the permits and tags by calling the front desk of your specific purchasing district.”

Effective June 15, 2020, you will be required to hold a free use permit and follow the associated regulations within that permit. Please request your free personal use permit by completing and signing the mail-in form available on our website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/lassen. Send your form to one of the offices listed below and we will mail your free firewood permit(s) and regulations.

These permits are only valid on Lassen National Forest lands open to firewood cutting. You can obtain permits for up to six cords of firewood for personal use. A cord is the amount of tightly piled wood in a stack four feet high by four feet wide by eight feet long. If you purchased a firewood permit prior to the implementation of this policy, that permit remains valid and can be used through the end of December 2020. Because our employees have only limit access to our offices at this time, it may take up to one week to obtain a permit. Please plan accordingly. Commercial fuelwood is not part of the program, and commercial permits must be purchased.

Almanor Fishing Report

Another week of unsettled weather with afternoon winds has water temps dropping back into the low 60’s here on Almanor. Water level is unchanged from last week and visibility varies between 12-18 feet.

Trollers continue to target fish in the flats on the north/west section of the lake. Fishing has been good and the fish are in great shape as they continue to feed on insects. Fast, slow or in between are all producing fish. You must adjust methods based upon weather, slow down and increase setbacks when the lake flattens, speed up and troll hardware when winds prevent the slow troll. Arctic Fox flies at 2 mph will also produce fish. We are starting to see more boats on anchor targeting fish with the Almanor cocktail (cricket/meal worm suspended off the bottom).

The bass bite improved over the past week as fishermen target fish in deeper water off docks and rocky points.

A little recognition for Sierra's Fly & Tackle

Chelssa Outland

We recently had some technical difficulties or website glitches with one of our newest members.
Throughout our entire system anytime there was a link for Sierra's Fly and Tackles' website it was redirecting people to their email instead. Despite all the glitches Sierra's Fly and Tackle was so patient with us as we sorted it all out. 
I just wanted to say thank you to Sierra's Fly and Tackle for their patience and I wanted to share their website link because it is a great website that does well at showcasing their business.
