Brannan Island State Recreation Area is located in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This area northeast of San Francisco Bay has countless islands and marshes with many wildlife habitats and many opportunities for recreation-including boating, windsurfing, and swimming. One of the outstanding water-oriented recreation areas in the world, the area offers great fishing, which includes striped bass, sturgeon, catfish, bluegill, perch, and bullhead. Little Frank's Tract, a protected wetland marsh, is home to beaver, muskrat, river otter, mink, and 76 species of birds.
