Fish Creek WMA consists of a 2,046-acre natural wetland which is primarily an emergent marsh whose water level is dependent on the many beaver dams on the Fish Creek drainage and 2,392 acres of upland most of which is forested. The emergent marsh is mainly cattail with flooded shrubs interspersed throughout the area. There is a hardwood swamp along the fringe of the emergent marsh. The upland portion contains approximately 1000 acres of softwood scattered throughout the area and 861 acres of young northern hardwoods. There are 93 acres of open grassland maintained for ground nesting birds. Turkey and grouse can be found on the area as well as waterfowl, marsh birds, and songbirds which are attracted to the large wetland. There are two canoe launches, one near the village of Pope Mills and the other near the Macomb/Depeyster town line on State Route 184 . There are no developed hiking trails on the area.
