Glenn County is located approximately 100 miles north of the City of Sacramento, California.  Most of Glenn County is located on the west side of the Sacramento River.  The elevation varies from 100 to 200 feet above sea level in the vast tracts of farm land located by the river. The elevation rises from the central  part of the county rapidly to the west, where mountain peaks are in excess of 6000 feet elevation.
 

Farming is the major industry.  The most common products are cattle, rice, wheat, hay, oranges, prunes, walnuts, almonds and corn.  As well, there are numerous dairies in the county.  Light industry is located in or around the cities of Willows, Orland, and Hamilton City.

 

Good fishing in Glenn County is available at numerous creeks, streams and reservoirs in the Coastal Mountain Range located in the western part of the county..  World class salmon and shad runs occur in the Sacramento River.  Easy, cheap or free  access to the Sacramento River is available for yourself or your boat.
Due to the great tracts land set aside exclusively for duck sanctuary, duck hunting in Glenn County is considered world class.  This abundance of ducks available for hunting brings hundreds of hunters from around the world to Glenn County.
