Comments
General Comments: 
- Dry meadow, with the Little Truckee River running along southern edge. Channels join the Little Truckee or run directly into reservoir - Meadow usually on edge of Stampede Reservoir, however with low reservoir levels the meadow surface and reservoir do not interact - OHV tracks in meadow have formed an alternate, E-W channel - Lots of willow in upper and lower meadow along Little Truckee River
