Modoc County is the home of many of California’s best kept outdoor secrets: the South Warner Mountain Wilderness, Surprise Valley, Devil’s Garden, ghost towns, Fandango Pass, the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge, the Lava Beds National Monument, the Tule Lake Internment/Segregation Center and much, much more.
Tucked into the far northeastern corner of California, in a land the Native Americans once called, “The Smiles of God,” this diverse frontier region is also home to the quaint towns of Fort Bidwell, Lake City, Cedarville, Eagleville, Likely, Davis, Canby, Adin, Newell and the historic town of Alturas, the county seat. Here, there is literally something for every outdoor adventure seeker and western history buff. Visitors can actually step back in time to where the west still lives, a place rich in Native C
The Modoc National Wildlife Refuge (MNWR) located south and east of the Alturas city limits is part of a chain of National Wildlife refuges along the Pacific Flyway. It is home to greater sand hill cranes, golden and bald eagles and a host to both resident and migrating birds.
MNWR is an important resting and feeding area for waterfowl. More than 240 different bird species can be seen here seasonally so the refuge is a bird watcher’s paradise.
The MNWR also provides some of the best waterfowl hunting in the Northern Eastern corner of California. There are a variety of habitats in the hunt area including dry and flooded grain fields, wet meadows, ponds and marshes. The areas include rough, uneven terrain and deep, dense stands of bulrushes (tules) and ditches. The most common species harvested include Canada geese, mallards, widgeon and gadwall with decoying techniques being the most effective method. There are three spaced blinds available, out of the North hunt lot, which are all ADA accessible. The new Grandma Tract hunt area offers five assigned hunt units (two wetland, one dry grain field, and two units with freshly planted grain or moist soil/wetland) available.
