During the fall and winter season, Pablo National Wildlife Refuge is closed to all public use, including fishing and ice fishing. This allows birds to find a resting place during waterfowl and upland game bird hunting season on nearby lands. It will reopen to public access starting January 11, 2015.Public Use Opportunities Pamphlet
Pablo National Wildlife Refuge continues its mission as a “…refuge and breeding ground for native birds” by being the initial release site for the successful restoration of Trumpeter Swans to the Mission Valley. These large white birds can be seen with some regularity throughout the potholes and waterways of the Valley.
