Fishing is allowed year round under State regulations in all deep-water portions of the Upper Klamath Refuge. Air boats and jet boats are prohibited.

Approximately 6,000 acres of the Upper Klamath Refuge are open to waterfowl hunting during the State season. This includes Hanks Marsh on the southern end of Upper Klamath Lake and the northern, eastern and southern portions of Upper Klamath Marsh. Buy a Federal Duck Stamp, available at refuge headquarters. Duck Stamp dollars are used to purchase wetland habitat for inclusion in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Required of all waterfowl hunters over age 16, it is also a valuable collector's item
