Best time to visit: Late fall through early summer. Access to these islands is by boat (generally a jet motor is needed). The Snake River is very shallow and hazardous in this section when water flows are low.

What to see and do

At the wildlife area: The primary purpose of these islands is to provide public hunting of pheasants, quail and waterfowl. Deer hunting with appropriate tags, and fishing for catfish or other warmwater fish species also is allowed. The islands are open to the public year-round for bird and wildlife viewing. The islands are used by songbirds and other bird species. Waterfowl may be viewed in the river around the islands.

Nearby: The Owyhee Reservoir offers boating, camping, picnicking, hunting and fishing opportunities.

Directions

Klamath Wildlife Area

Take I-84 to Farewell Bend near Huntington. Boats may be launched at Farewell Bend State Park. Another public boat launch is next to the Oasis RV Park. Take I-84 south from Farewell Bend to Hwy. 201, then travel south on Hwy. 201 to the Oasis. There also are two boat launches in Weiser, Idaho.
