Echo Canyon Reservoir State Wildlife Area
Echo Canyon is a small state wildlife area with a popular fishing lake that can attract ducks and possibly some shorebirds during spring and fall. At the east end of the lake you will find a good cattail marsh where Marsh Wrens and Yellow-headed Blackbirds breed. In the colder months, look for Bald Eagles soaring over the water. Muskrats can be seen paddling through the water near the cattail marsh.
