Nearby Recreation - The Gridley area is a sportsman's haven. Excellent hunting, fishing and naturalist opportunities are available on private and public lands.

Its 8,400 acres form some of the most intensively used and developed wetlands in the entire Pacific Flyway. Gridley is within minutes of the exceptional recreational facilities available at Lake Oroville. Lake Oroville and the Oroville Afterbay feed into the clear rolling waters of the Feather River, which provides some of the best salmon fishing in the state.
