Directions:  From the center of Oakley on US 32, take Weber Canyon Road going east. (Signed for Smith and Morehouse Reservoir).  (Set your odometer - distances will be measured from this point). Go 11.8 miles following the Weber River then turn right onto to a well-maintained dirt road (FR033 or Smith and Morehouse Road) and go about 2 miles to the reservoir.   (If you're in Oakley around June you might want to try for Bobolinks).

Birding:  After turning onto the dirt road that goes along Smith and Morehouse Creek there are some good marsh and willow areas that are worth checking out..  Swainson's Thrush,  MacGillivray's Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and rarely a Pacific Wren have been found along here.

Look for American Dippers on some of the more rocky, shallow stretches of the creek.

Road to Smith and Morehouse Reservoir

Besides waterfowl on the reservoir look for Swainson's Thrush, MacGillivray's Warbler, and Ruby-crowned Kinglet along the shore.  Up higher beyond the reservoir you might find Clark's Nutcrackers.
