Indian Valley Wildlife Area consists of approximately 5,000 acres around Indian Valley Reservoir. The reservoir holds large and smallmouth bass, kokanee salmon, crappie, rainbow trout, bluegill, and catfish. Habitats include the reservoir inundation zone (open, grassy) and adjacent brush, chaparral, and woodlands. Bald eagles, deer, and wild pigs can be found here. Dense chaparral can make hunting difficult. The area is cooperatively managed with the surrounding BLM Indian Valley Management Area.
