Clear Lake Wildlife Area


The 97-acre Clear Lake Wildlife Area was designated as a wildlife area by the Fish and Game Commission in 2004. This area is one of the most significant bioregions of Lake County, comprised of a combination of oak covered hills, dense tule marsh, and an extensive riparian habitat system. This habitat mix provides for a wide diversity of aquatic and terrestrial species of wildlife including herons, red-tailed hawks, osprey, songbirds, waterfowl, deer, gray fox, bobcat, and coyote. Rodman Slough also serves as an important breeding and nursery area for numerous fish species including black bass, black and white crappie, and catfish.
