Rules and Regulations

Refuge rules and regulations protect visitors AND the resources.

Fallon NWR is open to the public for general recreation and public use.  Keep in mind, if an activity is not wildlife-related and doesn’t help in the protection or understanding of wildlife or their habitats, there are probably refuge rules to limit or restrict the activity.  Please check with refuge management before participating in an activity that could harm the environment or yourself.

Current wildlife dependent activities permitted at Fallon NWR include: Wildlife observation and photography; Interpretation, environmental education and hunting (following state and Federally approved seasons, rules, bag limits, weapon and ammunition regulations). A comprehensive review of the refuge Hunt Plan will begin in late 2017 and the public will be invited to participate in the process. Fishing is not allowed at Fallon NWR.

This refuge is remote, there is limited cell service and no public use facilities (restrooms, potable water, trash cans, or maintained roads) and seasonal weather events can change conditions rapidly.  Please call the Stillwater NWR Complex Visitor Services Manager at 775/423-5128 ext 228 for more information prior to your visit. We are happy to provide you the most current information, or mail you maps and brochures to help plan your visit.
