Each year, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife works with the current rice farmer of the Wildlife Area to provide habitat ideal for migrating shorebirds. The lease of the rice farmers includes flooding up about 150 acres of shorebird habitat during the months of July and August. These fields are flooded slowly at depths varying from 0.5 to 6 inches to attract shore birds.
The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is open everyday except December 25 and when flooded. The area is open sunrise to sunset. For directions to and a map of the YBWA, CLICK HERE.
