Ten miles south of Sutter, where Reclamation Rd crosses Tisdale Weir.
The Sutter Bypass is a floodwater bypass from the Sacramento River that floods about once a year. The area is managed by the Department of Fish and Game.
When flooded, the refuge can be covered by as much as 12 feet of water.
The refuge supports wintering populations of more than 175,000 ducks and 50,000 geese. It also supports a habitat for several endagered species, such as the giant gartner snake, winter run chinook salmon and the swainson hawk.
The vegetation is a mixed ripiarian forest.
