|Salt Plains NWR offers a wide variety of habitats for wildlife, resulting in a rich diversity of wildlife species who use the refuge throughout the year.|
The Great Salt Plains Lake is well known as the premier lake in northwest Oklahoma for excellent channel cat fishing. The Byron State Fish Hatchery regularly stocks the lake with channel catfish, hybrid striped bass and saugeye.
The Salt Plains Refuge maintains a 1200 acre area for public hunting of migratory and upland game birds. Deer hunting on the refuge is by permit drawing only. All other hunting is prohibited and the remainder of the government lands are closed to hunting.
The Harold F. Miller Auto Tour Route is a 2.5 mile driving trail which meanders by refuge ponds and farm fields where deer and waterfowl abound. The habitat and wildlife change througout the year, giving repeat visitors something differnet to enjoy each visit.
