Irrigon Wildlife Area

The Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas are a composition of four Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (department) managed wildlife areas located along the Columbia River, in the Columbia Basin. The four wildlife areas (Power City, Irrigon, Coyote Springs and Willow Creek) are within the Columbia Plateau ecoregion. Management agreements for these areas were initially established between 1971 and 1977 between the department and Federal agencies which own the lands.

The Columbia Basin Wildlife Areas, which total approximately 1,885 acres, provide an important landbase for the conservation and recreation of fish and wildlife within a highly privatized and altered landscape and play an important role for the Fall and Spring migrations of waterfowl in addition to resident upland game bird production.

Best time to visit: Upland birds, waterfowl and songbirds are common during most of the year. The area is heavily hunted during upland bird and waterfowl seasons

What to see and do

At the wildlife area: Painted turtles can be observed during the early morning hours in summer. Curlews can be seen after their arrival in March.

Nearby: The Columbia River offers a variety of scenic views and activities.
