PG&E Watershed Lands


Spanning 22 counties and totaling nearly 1,000 parcels, these 140,000 acres of watershed lands provide numerous public benefits: clean water, fish and wildlife habitat, scenic open space, and opportunities for fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, and other recreation.
Examples of well-known areas in the watershed lands include:
  • The outstanding fishing on beautiful Hat Creek in the Pit River watershed
  • The lakes in the scenic Grouse Lakes area of the Yuba River watershed, Tahoe National Forest
  • forest, wetland, and meadows in the Middle Fork Stanislaus River canyon above Lyons Reservoir.
Protected from development, and with their public values safeguarded, the watershed lands will be a valuable legacy for future generations.
