Description: 828 acres in the arid foothills on the western side of the San Joaquin Valley. The cattail-lined lake often provides good fishing. It also provides an opportunity for the patient hunter to take a few nice ducks during the waterfowl season. Shrub- covered hills surround the reservoir. Foot access only. Kit fox, kangaroo rats, and over 100 species of birds, including golden eagles, and California quail can be found here.

Special Restrictions: Limited to shotguns and archery equipment. No rifles or pistols may be used or possessed.

PLEASE NOTE: Area regulations are subject to change. Special restrictions on recreational uses, hunt days and methods of take are listed in the current year's issue of Hunting and Other Public Uses on State and Federal Areas, available at CDFW offices and places where licenses are sold.
