Helpful Information

Tenoroc provides a variety of quality public fishing opportunities.

Birdlife is abundant year-round, but seasonal specialties include songbirds during spring and fall migrations, nesting osprey, wading birds in the spring, and wintering waterfowl November to March. Butterfly populations reach their peak in late summer and fall.  Hiking and horseback riding are most pleasant fall through spring.
