The wildlife area is an important mule deer migration route and is heavily used during spring, summer, and fall. The same seasons are utilized by waterfowl and shorebirds. Bald eagles can be found in the vicinity. Rainbow, brown, and brook trout, and mountain whitefish can be found in the rivers and lakes.
