Sacramento River NWR, Packer Unit
Packer Lake is open daily for fishing from sunrise to sunset, year-round. The best time for angling is March through November for species such as bluegill and largemouth bass. A narrow, dirt road provides access to an unimproved boat launch area (for car top boats, no trailers). The entrance and exit is from the north end of the road. This is a primitive area - no facilities are available. For information on location and access visit the Sacramento River - A Guide to Recreation and Public Access.
