Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1959. It is named after the native fish the Utah chub. The refuge covers 17,992 acres with a 10,000 acre marsh system. Water is supplied by 5 major springs and several lesser springs and seeps. Fish Springs provides vital habitat for migrating wetland birds. Many of those species remain to nest and raise their young. Generally, mid April and late September coincide with the peak of the annual spring and fall migrations.
We offer wildlife observation and hunting to the general public and a great resource for scientific research to many universities, government agencies and individuals.
The Refuge offers a self guided tour route that is open all year. The Refuge office is open 7AM to 4:30 PM Monday to Friday .
There is no fee required to visit Fish Springs NWR.
