Fisher Hill consists of several parcels over roughly 500 acres. It is located on the Klickitat River, downstream from the Dillacort Canyon unit. This segment of the river flows through a narrow channel that was fished by the Yakama Tribe and remains an important fishing site. Habitat types at Fisher Hill are pine-oak woodlands and open grasslands similar to those at Dillacort Canyon.
