With sunset views of Mount Diablo and vast waterways traversing throughout the Delta, Fay Island Farms is an oasis for rest, relaxation, and adventure. Fay Island Farms comprises 100 acres (zoned for farm) with an additional 30-acre island/wetland (ideal for a hunt club) to the south with mitigation bank potential. This unique property can be used as a hunting club, fishing club, water sports vacation home, or limitless water farmland with the possibility of building more homes inland.
Fay Island is the Reclamation District 2113 with all benefits and responsibilities. There are no easements or liens, but the District does have obligations to the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Army Corps of Engineers.
There is a freshwater pump that has been tested potable and supplies all the domestic needs. There is a much larger pump to out-pump and keep the island dry. There are also siphons to quickly flood the island if desired. Levees are solid but can be improved. No more structures can be built on the levee or over water, but there are no restrictions to building inland (except perhaps septic). There is PG&E power under the channel from Bacon Island as well as wired phone, satellite TV, and internet. All structures are built on pilings, are wood with comp roofs, and while originally built over 50 years ago, have been upgraded and maintained.
For the fisherman, if you have dreamed of a place where you can catch 20-50 fish a day in the three to five-pound range and have the opportunity to bag a ten-pound fish in the same day, Fay Island is the place for you! The Delta is a bass haven with seemingly endless rock banks, expansive weed flats, and tulle islands. Home to smallmouth bass, spotted bass, largemouth bass, and striped bass (along with 51 other species of fish!), the Delta fishes big, and almost every bank holds fish.
For the water sportsman, welcome to year-round water skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, and personal watercraft sports in the California Delta. There are water-skiing clubs, one or more with sky jumps and slalom courses, and some stage competitive events. Some of the best skiers in the world either hail from this region or train here. As such, there is no shortage of support facilities for the water skier in the Delta area, from marinas that have almost anything you might require, waterski schools to brush up your skills, to shops that specialize in skiing and waterboarding equipment.
Enjoy long weekends on the water, letting the Delta breeze soothe your senses, at Fay Island Farms.
